The Condition of Higher Education in California, 2002: A Report on Higher Education in California for the Year 2002. Commission Report.
California State Postsecondary Education Commission, Sacramento.
This report contains information about the condition of education in California in 2002. It contains demographic information about students at California institutions, enrollment estimates for the rest of the decade, admissions requirements, tuition and fees, financial aid, teaching credentials, and degrees awarded. The report also contains descriptions of the public and independent institutions in California, their missions, and their general characteristics. The report is based on the most recent data available from Californias public school system and its public, private, and independent colleges and universities. Current information suggests that California can expect an enrollment of more than 586,700 additional students in its public colleges between 2000 and 2010. This growth is expected to occur differentially with respect to geographic location, ethnicity, economic status, and academic preparation of students. California will need to ensure that all residents complete high school education and obtain the core competencies needed to succeed in the workforce or higher education. The state will need to fulfill this responsibility by ensuring better linkages between education and the needs of the new economy. (Contains 13 figures and 1 table.) (SLD)
