Creating Choice in California Higher Education: A Proposed Voucher Program. Research & Occasional Paper Series: CSHE.16.11
Murphy, Patrick
Center for Studies in Higher Education
The state of California currently has a monopoly on the provision of higher education that is directly subsidized by state taxpayers. This proposal suggests that California abandon the "single provider" approach and offers a choice or voucher program as a substitute. The purpose of proposing such a dramatic change is not necessarily intended to bring about a shift in policy. The paper, instead, uses the voucher proposal as a vehicle to ask: what is the state's interest in supporting higher education with taxpayer dollars and how can it most efficiently pursue that interest? (Contains 3 tables, 2 figures and 4 footnotes.)
