High school reform focus of meeting with
students, state policy makers Dec. 1

More than 150 high school students from across the state will meet with education policy makers to discuss high school reform issues on Thursday, Dec. 1 from 1 to 2:30 p.m. in room 4202 of the State Capitol.

The town hall meeting titled "Are California's High Schools Succeeding?" is sponsored by the LegiSchool Project, a non-partisan civic education effort of Sacramento State's Center for California Studies and the State Legislature.

The town hall meeting will allow policy makers and educators to hear from high school students on issues such as concerns over the exit exam, the debate on vocational education versus college preparation course requirements, the shift toward small learning communities and more. Following the meeting, LegiSchool will host a one-week online dialogue to continue the discussion on high school reform.

Panelists for the Dec. 1 town hall meeting will include Assemblymember Gene Mullin (D-South San Francisco), Paul Warren of the Legislative Analyst's Office and Akili Moses Israel of LEED-Sacramento (Linking Education and Economic Development), an organization that partners with schools and employers to create programs to improve education and training for youth in the Sacramento area.

Audience participants will include students from Hiram Johnson High School and Rio Americano High School, both in Sacramento; Central High School West in Fresno; Lodi High School in Lodi; and Verdugo Hills Senior High School in Tujunga. Sacramento State education professor Paula Gardner will serve as moderator for the meeting.

For more information call (916) 278-4642. Media assistance is available by contacting the Sacramento State public affairs office at (916) 278-6156.
