Public Policy Institute of California
This edition of the PPIC (Public Policy Institute of California) Statewide Survey is the fourth in a series of surveys funded by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation focusing on higher education. This survey seeks to inform state policymakers, encourage discussion, and raise public awareness about the state's public higher education system--the state's third largest area of spending. Findings are based on the responses of 2,502 California adults, interviewed in multiple languages on landline and cell phones. Some findings of the current survey are: (1) About three-fourths of Californians say state funding for public higher education is inadequate; (2) Most Californians favor more money for higher education even at the expense of other state programs; (3) Almost 60 percent of all parents--and 72 percent of Latino parents--are very worried about paying for college; and (4) Most Californians say the state's three college systems are doing a good or excellent job.
