Supplemental Language to the 1988-89 Budget directed the Commission to review the teacher preparation programs at the University of California and the California State University, assess their relative cost-effectiveness, and comment on the appropriateness of the segments' enrollment projections for them.

This report provides an overview of these programs in the two segments and discusses their cost elements, issues of effectiveness, and the appropriateness of their enrollment projections. Following two introductory sections that summarizes the report and explain its background, Part Three on pages 5-10 describes the diversity of teacher preparation programs within the University and State University. Part Four on pages 11-12 analyzes their cost components. Part Five on pages 15-16 discusses their effectiveness. And Part Six on pages 15-16 outlines their enrollment plans and projections.

Appendices A and B to the report on pages 17-84 reproduce documents submitted by the University and the State University for the study.

The Commission adopted this report at its meeting on March 6, 1989, on recommendation of its Policy Evaluation Committee.
