California’s Master Plan for Higher Education represented a promise, of an affordable college education, to every person who could benefit. For decades, California’s lawmakers honored that promise. But rapidly increasing college fees, coupled with higher costs for room and board, books, transportation, and healthcare are pricing students out of higher education or burdening them with excessive debt. The following anthology of the Commission research provides insights into why college is less affordable and what California’s leaders can do to make higher education affordable once again.
