Report 07-04: College-Going Rates: A Performance Measure in California’s Higher Education Accountability Framework
Published by The California Postsecondary Education CommissionMarch 2007View Full Publication
As part of its work in developing an accountability framework for higher education, the Commission conducted an analysis of college-going rates in California. This analysis showed that:
- California has serious inequities in access to higher education. College-going rates vary greatly depending on students’ ethnicity, gender, and the type of neighborhood where the student’s high school is located.
- California’s college-going rate for four-year colleges is lower than in most other states.
- College-going rates measure access to higher education, but are only one part of the accountability picture.
