California State Legislature, Sacramento. Assembly.
This report on California's higher education system and its Master Plan for Higher Education focuses on making California a fully multicultural democracy in which all are empowered to participate as equal citizens. The report is organized in nine sections the first of which is an introductory essay reviewing the background of the state's higher education achievements and the principles for the current review. The second section delineates the mission of the master plan. The third section discusses admission and transfers, including issues of access and minority participation. The fourth section outlines expansion and growth including the pressing need for greater capacity within the system. The fifth section discusses educational equity including state commitment, financial aid, equity for non-traditional students, faculty and staff diversity, and academic freedom and tenure. The seventh section, "Educational Quality," discusses cooperation with elementary schools and secondary schools; undergraduate education; graduate and professional education; quality in vocational education; adult and non-credit education; and assessment, accountability, and incentive funding. The eighth section explores higher education's role in California's economic and social development. A "concluding comment" urges the importance of the points presented. (JB)
