Mark Baldassare, Dean Bonner, Sonja Petek, and Nicole Willcoxon

November 2010

Some findings of the current survey:

  • About three-fourths of Californians say state funding for public higher education is inadequate.
  • Most Californians favor more money for higher education even at the expense of other state programs.
  • Almost 60 percent of all parents -- and 72 percent of Latino parents -- are very worried about paying for college.
  • Most Californians say the state’s three college systems are doing a good or excellent job.
