UCLA Center X Prepares & Supports Educators

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.
We are a community of educators working to transform public schooling to create a more just, equitable, and humane society. Our work extends across two graduate credential programs and many professional development initiatives.

When the Celebrations Are Over

Yes, I am happy that Juneteenth is recognized as a Federal Holiday, but to be elated over this surface gesture hides the unfulfilled promises and commitments to Black people that continue to get buried every time we are thrown a bone.
