Fulfilling the Promise of the Local Control Funding Formula

Policy Analysis for California Education (PACE) Research and Policy Conference

Friday, February 2, 2018
Tsakopoulos Library Galleria, Sacramento

PACE’s annual research and policy conference is the premier event for policymakers, researchers, advocates and local education leaders who are working to define and sustain a long-term strategy for comprehensive policy reform and continuous improvement in California’s education system.

Our 2018 full-day conference will focus on three key education policy issues: ensuring educational equity under the Local Control Funding Formula (LCFF), rethinking policy and practice in special education, and strengthening alignment between California’s pre-K and K-12 education systems. Registered participants will learn about key policy debates and research-based best practices through conference plenaries and workshops. We will also release findings from the new 2018 PACE/USC-Rossier public opinion poll on education issues facing California.

Featured Speakers:
Eloy Oakley, Chancellor, California Community Colleges
Michael Kirst, President of State Board of Education
Susanna Loeb, Stanford University
