California's higher education system is facing severe financial strains, challenging its ability to provide widespread, high-quality education.
On June 16, 2010, the Commonwealth Club of California hosted an expert panel at its San Francisco headquarters. Club President and CEO Dr. Gloria C. Duffy moderated a panel that included Charles Reed, chancellor of California State University; Jack Scott, chancellor of California Community Colleges; and Mark Yudof, president of University of California.

Watch the video above to see a fascinating discussion about what the schools do well, how they're funded, what the options are, and what the higher education system means to the people, politics, and economy of California.
