Education Sub-committeeEdit

Concerned about the state of education in the Silicon Valley?
At the 3/18 meeting, we saw a short presentation on how students in Silicon Valley Schools are doing. At dinner we decided to meet again to start an education improvement sub-committee with a focus on race and equity.

Join us at the sub-committee meeting on April 1st, at 2pm, at 2200 Monroe St, Santa Clara, in the community room next to the pool. Snacks are encouraged. The tentative agenda is as follows:

  • Review Student Results
  • Agree on the issue we want to work on
  • Brainstorm how to best address the issue
  • List possible next steps

To RSVP and for more information contact questions at blueskyschools dot com.

Education has been in the California news this week. If you would like to read about what everyone is talking about, take a look a the Get Down to Facts report released by the Institute for Research on Education Policy & Practice. This is the summary of the 20 research projects conducted in California, by some of the most prominent education researchers in the country.
