California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
The development and progress for 1975-1980 of equal educational opportunity programs in California are summarized, and proposals for progress over the next 5 years and 10 recommendations for public action are offered. The current status of equal educational opportunity is examined for economically-deprived students, women, and ethnic minority students. Additionally, goals and activities are identified for the following levels: junior and senior high schools, high school through first year of college, community college programs, four-year college programs, and graduate and professional programs. Priorities for action include: focusing effort on the high school curriculum, focusing attention on program completion as well as admission, enhancing the educational environment, improving community college opportunities, improving undergraduate support services, improving coordination of postsecondary outreach efforts, retaining mathematics and science-based career options, improving graduate-level efforts, involving the private sector, and assessing the potential impact of changes in federal funding. Appended materials include the text of Assembly Concurrent Resolution Number 151, conclusions from previous reports on equal educational opportunity, and data on the ethnic composition of students and graduates, 1975-1980.
