Maybe not such a good deal

Students - at least those at the Daily Bruin - are beginning to question the deal suggested by legislative Dems that would kill the middle class scholarship plan in order to provide more direct funding for UC.  Such a plan would cause net tuition to rise for recipients of the plan to pay for money UC funding.  That approach sounds a lot like the Regents' plan to raise tuition to add funding for UC (if the state won't add the funding requested), although it's done in a more complicated way.
