Center for Cities + Schools & Policy Analysis for California Education

CC+S’s policy research seeks out practical, proven solutions for cities and schools to implement in order to create more opportunity-rich places. Our publications, tools, and reports lift up innovations that are then easy for local, state, and federal policymakers to spread. As these innovations spread, entrenched systems begin to change.
CC+S’s research also highlights a critical emerging area of thought: how bringing rigorous, relevant learning into classrooms can improve academic outcomes and strengthen cities at the same time. 

Policy Analysis for California Education (PACE) is an independent, non-partisan research center based at Stanford University, the University of Southern California, and the University of California – Davis. PACE seeks to define and sustain a long-term strategy for comprehensive policy reform and continuous improvement in performance at all levels of California’s education system, from early childhood to postsecondary education and training. PACE bridges the gap between research and policy, working with scholars from California’s leading universities and with state and local policymakers to increase the impact of academic research on educational policy in California.
