Boosting California’s Postsecondary Education Performance: New Report Release
On November 26th, in collaboration with Lieutenant Governor Gavin Newsom, the Committee for Economic Development (CED) released Boosting California’s Postsecondary Education Performance at San Francisco's Commonwealth Club. The report examines the condition of California’s postsecondary education and provides recommendations for improvement, focusing on issues that include: major demographic shifts in school- and working-age Californians; state-based opportunities in education and training; projected shortages of workers with education and training beyond high school; and financial impediments for students and families.
In addition to keynote remarks by the Lieutenant Governor, other featured speakers included Lenny Mendonca, Director, McKinsey & Company; Patrick Callan, President, Higher Education Policy Institute; Mohammad Qayoumi, President, San José State University; Christine Herron, Director, Intel Capitol; Robert Linscheid, President & CEO, San Francisco Chamber of Commerce; and Eloy Oakley, President & Superintendent, Long Beach City College.
