- Education for Students at CSUs Shortchanged by State’s Fiscal Crisis
- Faculty in Crisis is a two-part study and the second in a series of reports about the devastating effects of state budget cuts on the California State University system. The reports find that many professors in the CSU system feel that the cutbacks already implemented, coupled with the substantial cuts projected, put the quality of a CSU education in a rapid spiral downward. The studies reveal that faculty are extremely concerned, that the students are losing out, and that their learning experience is significantly undermined by the fiscal crisis.
- Separate and Unequal Schools Pervasive in Southern California
- California has become a national leader in school segregation for Latino students who are now a clear majority of all students in Southern California, the center of the nation’s largest Latino community. The Southern California region is also home to the West’s largest black community and African American students are also intensely segregated. This segregation is not only by race and poverty, but frequently by language as well, and it is related to fundamentally different patterns of educational opportunity and achievement.
- Impact of CSU Cuts on Students is Worse than Expected
- Fewer courses and rising tuition are compounded by the nation's financial crisis.

- A Threat to the Integrity of Civil Rights Research in Arizona and Elsewhere
- CRP views the demands by the Arizona court in the Horn v. Flores case -- that confidential information be disclosed and that assurances to respondents be systematically ignored and violated -- to be a direct threat not only to civil rights and educational research, but also to the confidence any respondent could have about the disclosure of confidential information, which political leaders of a state might want to demand in the midst of a trial.
