The Challenge of Achievement: A Report on Public and Private Higher Education in California to the Joint Committee on Higher Education of the California Legislature.
Joint Committee on Higher Education, Sacramento, CA.
This report on California higher education covers public and private junior and senior colleges and universities. It is arranged by topic rather than by kind of institution; data specifically on the junior college therefore is found, along with information on other institutions, in its appropriate place under each topic. Part I contains an introduction and outlines the current state of higher education (its structure and governance; programs, policies, and objectives; financing), major trends of the past decade, and cost and enrollment projections through 1975. Part II amplifies points in the present structure and governance and goes on to a proposed plan of reorganization, with due regard for the constant debate on consolidation vs. autonomy. The principal objectives, as well as details, of the plan are given. Subsequent chapters describe the achievements in, and obstacles to, equality of opportunity for the disadvantaged in higher education, the problem of student attrition, the role and function of private education (including the legal and constitutional aspects of state financial aid), sources and budgeting of funds for public higher education, and the problems of urban community education and assistance. Appendices include resolutions concerning the Joint Committee on Higher Education of the California Legislature, further details of legal opinion on state aid to private schools, and statements by the Committee members (including a dissenting opinion on the reorganization plan).
