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.
