The University Council for Educational Administration (UCEA) awarded institutional membership to the Berkeley School of Education during its Annual Convention in Seattle this week, opening the door to greater collaboration on the promotion and dissemination of research, professional learning, and educational policy. More than a dozen BSE faculty and graduate students are in Seattle to give talks at UCEA.
BSE Prof. Bruce Fuller will work with a team of researchers to study how the state's pandemic recovery grant program was used to address learning gaps and inequities among students. “Billions of new dollars are being pumped into public schools, and we can’t afford to wander in empirical darkness," said Professor Fuller. "We now have a chance to discover what’s working to lift our kids.”
The California Department of Education is investing $2 million in the Berkeley School of Education-based 21st Century California School Leadership Academy for new training and a certificate—the first of its kind in the state—for school leaders and administrators who will implement California’s groundbreaking Universal Transitional Kindergarten (UTK) policy.
