Turn ideas and evidence into actionable strategies
In each Budgeting for Educational Equity episode, host Jason Willis, Director of Strategic Resource Planning and Implementation for WestEd, welcomes education leaders and practitioners to discuss funding, education improvements, and strategies to advance resource equity across all levels of California’s public education system.
Each episode presents guest speakers who share their expertise, discuss the tools they’re using, what’s working, and what they’ve learned. Join us to tap into the experiences of guest experts and colleagues who are doing the work every day of ensuring fair allocation of resources. This series will also present helpful briefs and worksheets to encourage usage and implementation of the ideas discussed.
