State Board of Education Update
Legislation & Policy

Cabinet Report — July, 9, 2015

In a recent article, Sue Burr, member of the state board of education addressed the question of accountability. She writes: “Our job as a policy making body is to say what are the power indicators that are meaningful at the state level that are reasonable to use to compare across LEAs and charters and will set the expectations and targets that will accomplish all of the guiding principles we want around equity, student performance, graduation, etc. [...] We certainly want to keep faith with what the intent [of the LCFF] was but, again, in my freak-out moment when I saw all of those indicators I had an NCLB nightmare and I just don’t think any of us want to end up there.”
