PPIC Statewide Survey: Californians and Higher Education
Key findings from the current survey:
- Most Californians think public higher education should be a high priority for the next governor; many are ready for a change in policies.
- A majority see affordability as a big problem and are concerned about students at public colleges and universities taking on too much debt.
- More than half say the level of state funding for higher education is inadequate; many think a state spending guarantee for the California State University and University of California systems is a good idea.
