Coordinating Institutions

Stanford University

Stanford University, the same entity that coordinated the 2007 Getting Down to the Facts report, has once again convened an expert education research team for Getting Down to Facts II. Through state-of- the-art research and innovative partnerships with educators worldwide, Stanford University was well equipped to convene this multi-faceted research investigation to understand how California is implementing education reforms and to identify challenges that may need to be addressed by policymakers and educators.

Policy Analysis for California Education (PACE) is an independent, non-partisan research center led by faculty directors at Stanford University, the University of Southern California, the University of California Davis, the University of California Los Angeles, and the University of California Berkeley. In coordination with Stanford University, PACE assisted with the coordination and dissemination of the Getting Down to Facts II report to bring evidence to bear once again on the current conditions and paths forward for California’s schools.
