The Stanford Report details a new study, "Getting Down to Facts," by Stanford researchers and others exploring California's K-12 education system. The 18-month project coordinated by Stanford's Institute for Research on Education Policy & Practice "represents an unprecedented attempt to synthesize what is already known about California's system as a basis for understanding what should be done to fix it."

Among the Stanford researchers who contributed to the study is Stanford Law professor William Koski, whose research focused on collective bargaining and teacher assignment among California schools. A summary is available here.
