Stanford Opens New Institution To Study Education Policy In California And US.

EdSource (9/2, Fensterwald) reports the Stanford University Graduate School of Education announced the opening of the Learning Policy Institute, which will seek to influence K-12 education policy in California and the US. Professor Linda Darling-Hammond from Stanford will be the president and CEO of the new institute. The institute has an initial budget of $5 million provided by a number of foundations. Darling-Hammond said she expects the current debate over the rewriting of the No Child Left Behind Act will result in states regaining more control over education, which will require institutions like the Learning Policy Institute to do more to advocate for good policies.
