In this edition of “This Week in California Education,” Executive Director Louis Freedberg, and Editor-at-Large John Fensterwald, joined by EdSource math and science reporter Carolyn Jones and PPIC center director and senior fellowHans Johnson, take on the following questions:

  • Should school districts be required to do more detailed reporting on how they spend state funds? (Update: Since the podcast was recorded, the bill that would have required more information has been substantially amended. You read an update on the story here.)
  • Where in California should educators go to produce more college graduates? (read story)
  • How do some school districts convince students to take math courses — over the summer no less? (read story)

And John and Louis make their predictions of the week!
