On Tuesday, January 12, 2016, EdSource and Partners for Each and Every Child hosted a webinar to examine the implications of the new federal Every Student Succeeds Act on California and the effort to ensure that every child has an equal opportunity to succeed in school.
Moderated by EdSource Executive Director Louis Freedberg, the panel consisted of:
- Linda Darling-Hammond, president and CEO, Learning Policy Institute
- Christopher Edley, chair, Partners for Each and Every Child, co-founder, The Opportunity Institute
- Rick Miller, executive director, CORE Districts
- Michelle Rodriguez, assistant superintendent, Santa Ana Unified School District
- Tom Saenz, president and general counsel, Mexican American Legal Defense and Educational Fund
- Socorro Shiels, superintendent, Santa Rosa City Schools, education director, California Collaborative for Educational Excellence (as of Feb. 1)
- Ryan Smith, executive director, The Education Trust-West

We need your help ...
Unlike many news outlets, EdSource does not secure its content behind a paywall. We believe that informing the largest possible audience about what is working in education — and what isn't — is far more important.
Once a year, however, we ask our readers to contribute as generously as they can so that we can do justice to reporting on a topic as vast and complex as California's education system — from early education to postsecondary success.
Thanks to support from several philanthropic foundations, EdSource is participating in NewsMatch. As a result, your tax-deductible gift to EdSource will be worth three times as much to us — and allow us to do more hard hitting, high-impact reporting that makes a difference. Don’t wait. Please make a contribution now.
