The State of California used to rank 1st in Education. Now we are ranked 45th in the country. Higher Education today is becoming less and less of a priority. Affordability and access to higher education is becoming more limited to students due to cuts in financial aid, increase in tuition, changes in eligibility, and more. Come learn about the issues that are turning higher education into a crisis and how they are being addressed.
