Policy Analysis for California Education (PACE) is an independent, non-partisan research center led by faculty directors at Stanford University, the University of Southern California, the University of California Davis, the University of California Los Angeles, and the University of California Berkeley. PACE seeks to define and sustain a long-term strategy for comprehensive policy reform and continuous improvement in performance at all levels of California’s education system, from early childhood to postsecondary education and training. PACE bridges the gap between research and policy, working with scholars from California’s leading universities and with state and local policymakers to increase the impact of academic research on educational policy in California.
Founded in 1983, PACE
- Publishes policy briefs, research reports, and working papers that address key policy issues in California’s education system
- Convenes seminars and briefings that make current research accessible to policy audiences throughout California
- Provides expert testimony on educational issues to legislative committees and other policy audiences
- Works with local school districts and professional associations on projects aimed at supporting policy innovation, data use, and rigorous evaluation
