Capitol Alert

The latest on California politics and government

Frustrated by tuition increases and ongoing spending cuts, California college student leaders criticized Gov. Jerry Brown in an open letter Thursday and complained he hasn't met with them.

"When you were elected in 2010," the students wrote the Democratic governor, "many students hoped that your election would usher in a new era for public higher education in California and reverse the approach taken by your predecessor.

"Thus far, things have not improved, and in fact, in many ways they have worsened."

In their letter, presidents of the University of California Student Association, California State Student Association and Student Senate for California Community Colleges complained Brown hasn't invited them to participate in meetings with college administrators.
