Over the past 10 years, California's PreK-12 public school system has seen transformative changes in almost every arena, from academic standards and accountability to resource allocation through the funding formula. The Getting Down to Facts II project brought together over 100 of the country's top education scholars to examine these changes and assess our progress. The project's 36 studies, released this past fall, focused on student success, governance systems, personnel issues, and school finance, and together, they can help build a common understanding of where we are that can be used to guide further improvements.

This symposium is designed to enable education leaders in the San Diego area to engage directly with some of the GDTF researchers, and each other. The researchers will provide brief overviews of the findings in three different areas, followed by time for questions and table discussions around how this evidence might inform local efforts to improve our schools. This event will be co-hosted by San Diego State University and Policy Analysis for California Education (PACE).
