California has built broad support for educational changes that have sparked divisive battles in other states. The “California Way” involves stakeholder alignment that starts with the highest levels of state government and includes deep work with innovative labor-management partnerships. The panel will analyze the relationships between the “what” of CA’s approach (new standards, new funding models, new accountability system) and the “how” of California’s work (innovative team-based, collaborative models). Panelists will provide first-hand insight into the exciting potential and successes to date, as well as the sometimes difficult struggles encountered by California.
