This report presents detailed information about the financing of California postsecondary education from 1965-66 through 1998-99, and general data on California public elementary and secondary education financing. Among highlights of the 1998-99 budget are a nearly $1-billion increase in combined state and local funds to the community colleges, the California State University, and the University of California, in addition to $55 million to reduce student fees and fund enrollment growth. Most of the report consists of 96 tabular displays organized under 16 major categories: state general fund appropriations; the total state spending plan; funding per unit of full-time equivalent student enrollment; appropriations of funds for California higher education; categories of expenditures for the systems; student tuition, fees, and revenues; state financial aid; capital outlay funds; independent institutions in California and the nation; enrollments in California public postsecondary education; price (inflation) indices, income growth, and system financial support; actual and constant-dollar state-determined funds; Hastings College of the Law and public school support; per capita spending in California public education; education funding and enrollments in comparison to state funding and population growth; and national comparative higher education appropriations and expenditures. Appendices include cumulative percentage changes over time, definitions, and notes and sources. (Contains 26 references.) (DB)
