Assembly Education Committee Hearing

On April 8, 2021, Executive Director Dr. Su Jin Gatlin Jez provided witness testimony to the Assembly Education Committee in support of Assembly Bill 99, introduced by Assemblymember Jacqui Irwin, which would establish the long overdue Cradle-to-Career Data System.

"This bill is essential because the lack of comprehensive, longitudinal data prevents policymakers from pinpointing where Californians fall through the cracks of the education-to-employment pipeline, how that varies by race, gender, region, and income, why it happens, and most importantly, what we can do about it," Dr. Jez said.

The bill passed out of the committee by unanimous vote.
