Professor William Koski was a guest on Insight, a public affairs interview program hosted by NPR's Sacramento affiliate, KXJZ. Koski was part of a panel discussing the results of "Getting Down to Facts," a compilation of 20 studies on California's school finance and governance systems. Koski's study, “Curbing or Facilitating Inequality? Law, Collective Bargaining, and Teacher Assignment Among Schools in California,” conducted with Eileen L. Horng, Research Associate, Institute for Research on Education Policy and Practice (IREPP) at Stanford University, focuses on the legal, policy, and contractual structures designed to place highly qualified teacher in low-income, high-minority schools, as well as those that may constrain efforts to get good teachers into more difficult teaching assignments.
