A new report, "Consequences of Neglect: Performance Trends in California Higher Education," documents the impact of years of budget cuts on colleges and universities in the state. The report, prepared by the Institute for Higher Education Leadership and Policy, of California State University at Sacramento, notes the extent to which California was once considered a higher education leader. The report finds that the state is currently struggling to be average in many higher education measures. The study examines six categories, rates current performance compared to other states and offers a seven-year trend.
|Category||Current Performance||7-Year Trend|
|Preparation||Worse than most states||Up|
|Participation||Better than most states||Down|
