Education Master Plan Update: A Regular Report on Hearings of the Joint Legislative Committee To Develop a Master Plan for Education, Issues 1-5.
Community Coll. League of California, Sacramento.
These five reports on the hearings of the Joint Legislative Committee To Develop a Master Plan for Education were published by the Community College League of California. The first hearing of the Master Plan Committee was held in August 1999. The transfer rate from community colleges to California State University/University of California (CSU/UC) was referred to as a "disgrace"; this term was also used in reference to the disparity among colleges in the number of students who transfer (one California college transfers 700 students per year and another transferred only two students in the last six years). During the September 1999 meeting, both Legislative Analyst Elizabeth Hill and Pat Callan, President of the National Center for Public Policy and Higher Education, agreed that allocation of capital funds should be based on need, rather than the traditional one-third each for the three public higher education segments. The topic of the November 1999 meeting was "Accountability, Assessment, and Data Collection." Discussed was the possibility of merging the Stanford 9 Exam, the Golden State exams, the Advanced Placement exams, and the SAT/ACT. The February 2000 meeting addressed state offices and roles, and the August 2000 meeting announced the Master Plan Committee's issuance of a framework document. (JA)
