The Partnership has a history of advocacy that has resulted in meaningful change for students in LA Unified and across California. As a collaborative partner with LA Unified, we have applied our experience and recognized expertise alongside a broad range of stakeholders to push for change. We also pursue impact litigation efforts, including the Reed vs California case, which provided new supports for 36 high-need schools in LA Unified, and Cruz vs California, which ensured that students across California received the instructional time to which they are entitled. We are currently working to resolve two critical issues facing the Los Angeles education system: equitable funding and unified enrollment.
In support of these efforts, we have developed policy briefs around both equitable funding and unified enrollment. The research, analysis and recommendations within these briefs are an outgrowth of what we have heard and experienced alongside the school leaders, teachers and parents in our communities. The briefs are meant to inform and influence district and community leaders as we all work toward a more equitable system.
We have also helped launch, and actively participate in, coalitions around these issues, including Partnership for Equitable Access to Public Schools Los Angeles (PEAPS-LA) and United Parents for Educational Justice (UPEJ). We invite you to share your feedback and get involved.
