California must reevaluate how it makes decisions about funding for higher education if the state wants to ensure the success of its students and residents, and drive their active and significant contributions to society, a recent report from College Futures Foundation explains.

Some of the target issues that California’s higher education system faces include (as outlined by the recent report from College Futures Foundation):

-Unreliable patterns of funding streams for higher education;

-Fallible budgeting practices of employee benefits;

-A lack of flexibility in academic cost structures;

-Lack of clear communication between the state and institutions;

-Revenue and spending trends that are ineffective

Without adhering to these basic principles, California’s system for higher education will institutionalize – and perpetuate – social inequality and will limit opportunities for the futures of Californians.
