  • Increase HS graduation AND improve transition to college : California has a significant high school dropout rate , ranking 36th among the states in terms of high school graduation. Even among those who do manage to complete high school the college-going rate is low, with the state ranking 40th. If we had decent success 1/3 of gap could be closed.Close the college achievement gap: Persistent and largest achievement gap separating White and Asian students from underrepresented minority students, ranking 50th in the nation in terms of degree attainment. We have a gap of 33 percentage points while the degree attainment gap among these groups is 20 percentage points for the nation as a whole. This is not just a economic imperative, it’s an affront to our values around equity and fairness. If we were to close this gap entirely that would bring us roughly another 800K degrees, another third of the degree attainment gap closed.Increase degree production at community colleges: Community colleges give everyone a chance to get ahead, and so it is essential that they work well. But when we think about completion rates, our community colleges have a steep climb ahead of them. The California Community Colleges, however, rank 49th compared with other states in terms of completion. Improving attainment rates for transfer, degrees and certificates at community colleges could address a third to half of the 2.3 million graduate gap that we have identified.
