Volume 1, Issue 2

This 2014 Spring issue commemorates the 60th anniversary of Brown vs. Board of Education. Brown created hope for progress towards integration. After the 1964 Civil Rights Act, there was real progress but gradually it came to a halt after the Supreme Court changed the rules in the 1990's. Also in this issue, CRP Co-director, Patricia Gándara, discusses the roots of her career in policy research. She also focuses our attention on two pieces of California legislation that may be presented in 2016. Both have the potential to help increase educational equity for students from underrepresented backgrounds.


This section focuses on two new California legislative actions and how they relate to the work of the CRP.
