Mark Baldassare, Dean Bonner, Sonja Petek, and Jui Shrestha

Some findings of the current survey:

  • About six in 10 Californians say the state’s higher education system is headed in the wrong direction.
  • Three-fourths say there is not enough state funding for higher education.
  • Most say college affordability and the potential of more cuts are big problems for higher education.
