MetadataShow full item record
This report introduces California’s new public school funding law and posits that it represents an excellent opportunity to make district-wide changes in the education processes that most influence students of color. The report recommends new strategies for education reform that are informed by a Critical Race Theory framework, and proposes four areas of concern for California public school administrators to target in their district Local Control and Accountability Plans (LCAPs). The report includes examples of how districts around the state are already beginning to include these new strategies in their LCAPs, and the California state education standards they meet. The report also gives a short history of public education in the United States, as well as an introduction of a Critical Race Theory framework on education and its discriminatory history.
