California Gov. Gavin Newsom, a Democrat, on Friday proposed another million for the state’s three public higher education systems, but he also proposed new accountability measures. Los Angeles Times reported.
The proposals for the University of California, the University of California and California Public Colleges are “the most detailed numerical targets ever included as a condition of public funding under agreements reached by Newsom and the three systems.” The clock reported.
The goals include graduation, closing gaps in achievement, increasing the number of college vacancies for California residents, increasing financial aid, reducing debt, and reducing the cost of attending college. Reports on how the systems are meeting their goals will be released every November.
“These agreements represent a historic state reinvestment in our public colleges and universities, as well as a basis for us to be responsible for achieving real results for students and families,” Newsama said in a statement.
