University says it doesn't have the funds to open a second campus of the UCLA Lab School

From The Los Angeles Times: UCLA has put an indefinite hold on plans to open a second campus of its experimental laboratory school. The UCLA Lab School had planned to open elementary classrooms in South Los Angeles or the Pico-Union district near downtown. California's public universities have struggled with severe budget cuts, resulting in staff pay cuts and higher student fees. The Lab School expansion would have been too costly, university officials say.
