PPIC Statewide Survey Californians and Higher Education
Mark Baldassare, Dean Bonner, David Kordus, and Lunna Lopes

December 2016

Californians give the state’s public higher education system high marks, but see affordability as a big problem. Most say higher education funding is inadequate but also believe that existing funds need to be used more wisely. While nearly all see the system as important to the state’s future, Californians are divided on whether a college education is necessary for individual success in today’s economy.
