Federal oversight in the Golden State: A conversation with Michael Kirst (canceled)
Cosponsored by the Institute for Educational Leadership
About This Event

This event has been canceled. When we reschedule this, we ask that you reregister as well. Thank you for your patience.

Through initiatives such as Race to the Top and No Child Left Behind and through public support for the Common Core State Standards, the Obama administration has fueled debate over the federal role in K–12 schooling. California has been ground zero in an ongoing dispute between state and federal officials over how much say Washington will have in teacher evaluation, school accountability, and numerous other policies.

Join Michael Kirst of the California State Board of Education and of Stanford University to discuss California’s evolving stance on federal oversight of K–12 schooling.

If you are unable to attend, we welcome you to watch the event live on this page. Full video will be posted within 24 hours.
