Proposal to increase and accelerate graduation rates by Speaker Rendon

SACRAMENTO— Assembly Speaker Anthony Rendon (D-Paramount) released the following statement on the proposal before the California State University Board of Trustees to increase and accelerate graduation rates at the university:

“The ambitious goals being considered by the California State University Board of Trustees are just what we had in mind when the Legislature put $35 million into the budget to help CSU increase and accelerate graduation rates.  I especially want to commend CSU leaders for their hard work in developing concrete plans to meet those goals. With any new approach, implementation is key. As Speaker and a CSU Trustee, I will be closely monitoring the university's progress, both in closing the achievement gap and in increasing our overall graduation rate.”
