Toward Educational Equity: Progress in Implementing the Goals of Assembly Concurrent Resolution 83 of 1984. Commission Report 89-3.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
An intersegmental task force of the California Postsecondary Education Commission developed a plan and set of recommendations for enhancing the participation and success in postsecondary education of California students from economic, racial, and ethnic backgrounds historically underrepresented in higher education. Relevant segments of the State's educational community must inform the Commission of their progress in implementing the recommendations and the Commission must report this progress to the Legislature. The segments are the following: (1) the California State Department of Education; (2) California Community Colleges; (3) the California State University; (4) the University of California; and (5) the Association of Independent California Colleges and Universities. Their reports are included. The Commission's report to the Legislature, based on those reports, is presented in the following five parts: (1) background information about the report; (2) a statewide profile of implementation of the recommendations; (3) a report on the extent to which the goals are being achieved in terms of college eligibility, attendance, transfer, and graduation; (4) a summary of the "state of the State" with respect to achieving the goals adopted by the Commission in 1988; and (5) a discussion of the findings in terms of probable factors that influence the rate of progress in achieving educational equity. Also included are a list of nine references, the text of Assembly Bill 101 (1987), and 11 illustrative charts. (Author/VM)
