Policy Analysis for California Education, PACE (NJ1)

This case study will serve primarily as an historical account detailing the development of Quality Teacher and Education Act (QTEA). QTEA and the most salient details that led to its eventual passage, serving as an information source for San Francisco Unified School District (SFUSD) and other districts when they take on potentially controversial policy initiatives. Section One will detail how funding needs in the district and tense relationships between the union, the district, and the Board of Education initially stalled the parcel tax and how positive changes in district leadership facilitated collaboration around its development. Section Two will discuss how the district and union, with help from external partners, built support for the parcel tax. Finally, Section Three will detail the district and union negotiation process and the final provisions of QTEA. (Contains 2 figures, 6 tables and 23 endnotes.)
