Higher Education in California
Higher education enhances Californians’ lives and contributes to the state’s economic growth. But population and education trends suggest that California is facing a large shortfall of college graduates. Addressing this shortfall will require strong gains for groups that have been historically underrepresented in higher education. Substantial improvement in educational outcomes will create a more productive economy, higher incomes and tax revenues, and less pressure on the social safety net. This briefing kit highlights the most pressing issues in seven key areas.
