In 2016 the League of Women Voters of California finished its Study of Higher Education,which dealt with widespread criticism of the failure of California’s three-tiered system (of Community Colleges, State Universities and UC campuses) to meet the demand for more students ready to join the job market with Baccalaureate degree in hand. The study was in line with both the League’s strong general support of public education and especially of the community colleges, recognizing their five-fold mission: “to prepare students to transfer to four year colleges, to provide work place skills, career development and certification in a wide range of occupations, to offer opportunities for life-long education, to engage in programs fostering community economic development, and to provide instruction in basic academic skills to those who lack them.”
