The Center for Powerful Public Schools (The Center) is a true partner in our efforts to support students, parents and teachers in Los Angeles. They are both a thought-partner and ally!

I have worked with several Center staff members in various capacities and found each of them to be knowledgeable, dedicated and committed to improving the education environment and experiences for all public education students. The work done with our district in coaching, project based learning and implementation of Linked Learning helped us to strategically address equity, student achievement and engagement. The Center is cognizant of the unique characteristics of each education entity they work with. This allows them to facilitate the change process but districts to take ownership for sustainability.

Coming from a research perspective, the Center utilizes every asset its members brings to the table. By doing so, it ensures that everyone has a seat at the table when discussing problems in practice, equity stances, and approaches to social justice. The diversity exhibited by the staff is representative of their endeavors to develop, support, and uplift historically underrepresented communities in the greater Los Angeles area.
