Who We Are

JUST SCHOOLS CALIFORNIA aims to promote a more equitable and fully resourced system of public education in California by fostering a more engaged and active public. JUST SCHOOLS CALIFORNIA provides California’s public with education news, research, information about advocacy groups, and an array of other resources. This website is produced by UCLA’s Institute for Democracy, Education, and Access (UCLA/IDEA), and UCLA’s Program in Public Interest Law and Policy.



The name, “Just Schools,” echoes the words of Justice Brennan:

“The Board must be required to formulate a new plan . . . which promise[s]
realistically to convert promptly to a system without a 'white’ school and a
'Negro’ school, but just schools.”*

Green v. School Board of New Kent County, 391 US 430, 442 (1968)

*We are indebted to David Kirp for drawing this quote to our attention.




Just Schools California is supported in part by The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation and The Rockefeller Foundation
