This month, we celebrate the Class of 2020! Graduates of the UCLA Community School are preparing for bright postsecondary futures–61% to 4-year colleges and 32% to 2-year colleges. In our first student blog post, a senior reflects on his graduation and the power of community during this pandemic. We are also pleased to release a new Research, Practice, Policy Report on student agency as well as a teacher blog post about maintaining community virtually. Today, the Rise Up for Equity virtual conference launches and we share how to tune into the sessions about university-assisted community schools.
