This week, Timothy White announced he’ll retire next year as chancellor of California State University. Our guest, Chris Nellum, senior director of higher education research and policy at The Education Trust-West, reviews the momentous changes White initiated during his five years leading the nation’s largest 4-year university system and looks at challenges ahead.
Samantha Tran, senior managing director of education policy at Children Now, explains why Gov. Gavin Newsom and the Legislature should negotiate a compromise to place only one tax increase for education on the November 2020 ballot – instead of allowing two competing tax measures to move forward. She highlights a new study, comparing high schools in California, Illinois and New Jersey, which supports the case for raising revenue for California schools.
