Study Says California Sends Small Percentage To College
Sacramento, CA — A new report released today finds that California sends the second-smallest percentage of high school seniors to four-year college, ahead only of Mississippi.
The report also finds that there are too few counselors, teachers and college prep courses, especially at schools with a high percentage of low-income students and English-language learners.
The study focused mainly on enrollment at the ten-campus University of California and 23-campus California State University.
The report also found less than half of California high schools have enough classes to enable all students to complete college prep courses.
