Should a California State University Be Built in Susanville?

http://score.rims.k12.ca.us/score_lessons/Susanville/

Description: Because of the overcrowding and high-priced housing in the Silicon Valley, a major technology company recently decided to move its headquarters to a quiet section of Lassen County just outside of Susanville. Several other companies have followed its example and have settled in the same vicinity. The relocation of these businesses in this area is changing the population and types of people who are moving to this previously small, rural area. More college graduates are needed to fill the professional positions that are needed in these industries, and the children of these new residents will have to travel to get to a branch of the California State University. As a result, the California State University has decided to consider opening a branch in the area that would serve the not only Lassen County, but also Modoc, Plumas and Siskiyou counties by including courses of study that would help the residents of all of the counties of the northeastern corner of California. Standards 4.4.8 and 4.5.5
