California GEAR UP concluded their 2014 state-wide Leadership Forums with the theme “Social Justice and Equity: Common Core State Standards”. Jorge Aguilar (pictured above) Associate Vice Chancellor for Educational and Community Partnerships at the University of California, Merced was the keynote speaker.

His key question was: “How do we measure whether ALL students benefit from this policy shift?” You can view his entire presentation on our website here. You can read the full article here.
