Public Higher Education Performance Accountability Framework Report: Goal - Contributions to Economic, Civic, and Social Development Measure -- Educational Attainment of Population. Commission Report 07-11
California Postsecondary Education Commission
This report evaluates the contribution of public higher education to raise educational attainment and the challenge of aligning postsecondary education with evolving educational needs of the state's diverse population. Report conclusions include: (1) The educational attainment of California's population is growing more slowly than the national average, posing a threat to the state's long-term economic competitiveness; (2) Younger groups currently have lower levels of education than the retiring baby boomers they will replace; (3) There is a disparity in educational attainment based on ethnicity; (4) Migration into California is distorting the educational distribution by adding many highly-educated people to the population, but also many with less than a high school diploma; and (5) California's institutions of higher education lack the resources and capacity to supply enough college graduates to fill all the high-paying jobs the state's employers need to fill. (Contains 7 figures.)
