We are a community of educators working to transform public schooling
to create a more just, equitable, and humane society.

Dear Center X Community,

In light of recent announcements, we wish to reaffirm our commitment to public education.  Center X was founded two decades ago on the principle that a great public university must play a vital role in promoting equitable and high quality schooling across Los Angeles’ diverse communities.  Our belief in this principle and great Los Angeles public schools is stronger than ever.  As always, you will find us, our students, and our partners in public schools, working together to build a more just and humane society.

Annamarie Francois, Executive Director
John Rogers, Faculty Director


UCLA Center X is dedicated to dramatically changing schooling for the underserved students of Los Angeles.

Center X provides a unique setting where researchers and practitioners collaborate to design and conduct programs that prepare and support K-12 teachers and administrators committed to social justice, instructional excellence, the integration of research and practice, and caring in low-income urban schools.

Center X's work extends across two graduate credential programs

and many professional development initiatives.

The Power of Urban Teacher Residencies

Learning in residence is a powerful approach to teacher education that pairs apprentices with mentor teachers, supported by university coursework and urban communities. In this issue of the Center XChange, UCLA faculty, staff, students, and partners share their work over the past five years to create and study an urban teacher residency program called IMPACT: Inspiring Minds through a Professional Alliance of Community Teachers.
