UCLA Education Professor John Rogers has been named by State Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson to serve on an action team examining issues regarding charter schools and public education in California. The Action Team on Charter Schools will review laws governing California’s charter schools, and provide recommendations about any needed changes to the next State Superintendent of Public Instruction, Governor, State Board of Education, and State Legislature.
Team members represent a variety of organizations and perspectives, including those of philanthropists, charter schools, teachers, parents, and administrators. The team will be co-chaired by Action Team members Carl Cohn, Professor Emeritus, Claremont Graduate University, and Susan Bonilla, Council for a Strong America.
