Welcome to Essential Education, our daily look at education in California and beyond. Here's the latest:
- The probe into audit interference, ordered by UC regents, concluded that UC President Janet Napolitano approved a plan that led to the interference.
- UC regents, meeting in San Francisco, chastised Napolitano for her role in the interference. Napolitano responded by saying she should have shown better judgment.
- On Wednesday, they heard about ways to make a UC education more affordable.
The University of California is alleging that it’s uncovered a scheme that targeted hundreds of students through its student healthcare plan and cost UC almost $12 million.
In a complaint filed Thursday in Los Angeles County Superior Court, UC said the scheme used information from more than 500 students enrolled in its system-wide Student Health Insurance Plan that allowed doctors to write fraudulent medical prescriptions.
