Policy Analysis for California Education Interview with CCEE Executive Director, Carl Cohn

In 2013 the California Legislature created the California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (CCEE) to assist school districts, County Offices of Education, and charter schools in improving the performance of California schools and students. The CCEE is expected to provide “advice and assistance” to local actors in an education system with 58 counties, more than 1,000 school districts, and over 10,000 schools including 1,175 charter schools. In this interview, CCEE Executive Director Carl Cohn and PACE Executive Director David Plank discuss the CCEE and the strategies they are developing to promote continuous improvement in California’s education system.
