80+ Organizations Ask State Board of Education to Focus on Equity

July 8, 2016

In a letter to the State Board of Education, over 80 organizations joined Ed Trust–West in calling for a clear focus on equity in California’s new education accountability system. The groups argued, “When education leaders have timely, relevant data, they can more quickly identify what’s working and what’s not for their students. And when the data shows that a subgroup of students isn’t progressing, a school or district should be required to take action quickly to address these gaps.”
