Title:Beyond the master plan: The case for restructuring baccalaureate education in California
Organization:Civil Rights Project at UCLA
Short Description:This study documents how the structure of California’s higher education system restricts B.A. attainment among all students and especially among students of color.
Annotation:Although a stunning success in many ways, California’s 1960 Master Plan for Higher Education has been a conspicuous failure in one respect: California ranks near the bottom of the states in the proportion of its college-age population that attains a baccalaureate degree. California’s poor record of B.A. attainment is an unforeseen consequence of the Master Plan’s restrictions on access to 4-year baccalaureate institutions. In a cost-cutting move, the framers of the Master Plan restricted eligibility for admission to the University of California and the state colleges (later the California State University) to the top eighth and top third, respectively, of the state’s high school graduates. As a result, 2-year institutions have absorbed the vast majority of enrollment growth in California higher education. In addition to their important role in vocational education, the California Community Colleges now enroll between 40% and 50% of all students seeking a baccalaureate, including those at both the 2-year and 4-year levels.
