About the Program
California adopted the Common Core State Standards (CCSS) in 2010, and CCSS–based testing will begin in 2014–15. How are school districts—and the state—adjusting to the new standards and assessments? PPIC researcher Paul Warren will provide an overview of his new report, and a panel of education experts will discuss the challenges and opportunities presented by these new standards.
This research is supported with funding from the Evelyn and Walter Haas, Jr. Fund.
There is no charge to attend, but space is limited. Lunch will be provided. Questions? Contact Kellie Longo-Alrbarrán at firstname.lastname@example.org or (916) 440-1137.
