Closing the Gap: Meeting California's Need for College Graduates

Subject: student success
Date: 2009-04-01
By Hans Johnson and Ria Sengupta, writing for the Public Policy Institute of California.  The authors use state demographic and educational trends to argue that in fifteen years we'll be a million graduates short of the number we need to maintain our economy.  From the report:  "As a pathway for increasing the number of bachelor degree graduates in California, the community college transfer function has much potential and also considerable room for improvement.  With more than 70 percent of public higher education students in California in community colleges, the importance of the transfer function to increase bachelor degree production cannot be overstated."
