NEWS

Schools don’t show California kids enough movies – As our state considers new frameworks for how history and social science are taught, now is the time to incorporate that signature California art form – film – into classes in every grade. Movies should be placed at the center of our efforts to teach history, especially California’s.

San Diego Schools Give Business the Creative Talent It Will Need – When it is becoming clear that creativity and innovation are the benchmarks of the new global knowledge economy, California, and San Diego in particular, has been reinventing its systems of education.
