California is the fifth largest economy in the world, educates more than one out of every ten K-12 students in the nation, and is home to the largest system of higher education in the world. Yet despite California’s substantial resources and the progressive rhetoric of the state’s leaders, Black, Latinx, Native American, and Asian students continue to be underserved from preschool through college. Our 2022 Policy Agenda, Momentum: A Policy Agenda for Accelerating Racial Equity in California’s Education Systems in 2022, shares the 11 key policy priorities we’re championing in Sacramento and across the state to close opportunity and attainment gaps. Throughout 2022, we will continue to share research, resources, and opportunities to engage and advocate for these policy priorities. Soon we’ll share this year’s “Equity 8”, reviewing which budget and legislative proposals have the best potential to accelerate education equity this year.
