And now, an NBC Bay Area Editorial:

We ended 2010 talking about balancing the budget, talking about education reform.

So we start 2011 with record red ink, a $25 billion shortfall, a 22% high school drop-out rate, and a public school system that's failing our students.

Happy New Year, California!

In November, voters did their part. They made it easier to pass a budget, no more supermajority vote needed. So let's get on with it!

We need to grow jobs, not government. WE need an education system that can build a 21st century economy. Leaders who aren't afraid to rattle the infrastructure, cut bureaucracy, reward effective teachers and replace ineffective ones.

It's a new year, with a new governor, and a new chance to cut the lip service and get it right.
