California’s education system: A 2019 guide

The Legislative Analyst’s Office has just published the following report:

California’s Education System: A 2019 Guide

The LAO is launching a new product—a visual guide covering every major area of California’s education system. The guide has information on early education, K-12 education, adult precollegiate education, undergraduate education, graduate education, and education facilities. Within each of these areas, the guide generally covers the students who are served, the programs designed to serve them, the funds supporting those programs, how program funding is spent, and what is known about outcomes. The guide has information on everything from student diversity and achievement gaps, to student aid and borrowing, to faculty salaries and rising pension costs, to the requirements for becoming a teacher or doctor in California. The guide is intended to help state decision makers learn as much as possible as quickly as possible.
