Fewer than half of LGBTQ+ students report feeling safe at school. That is one of the key findings of WestEd researchers who analyzed two years of California Healthy Kids Survey results. This survey provides more data on LGBTQ+ youth than any other source in the nation.
School-based law enforcement is associated with increased student punishment but not school safety. Read more key findings from the WestEd Justice and Prevention Research Center’s examination of school policing's impact on safety and other outcomes.
WestEd works with schools, districts, and states to address inequitable policies and practices. Discover our expertise in Culturally Responsive and Sustaining Education (CRSE) and the core set of practices we bring to all phases of our research and evaluation process.
Racial biases and unequal power dynamics result in incomplete or inaccurate evaluation findings. One key strategy for ensuring complete and accurate findings is to build an evaluation team representative of the program participants.
WestEd experts in improvement science will present sessions that explore topics such as equity and diversity, data and measurement, and improvement capability at the Carnegie Foundation Summit, April 23–25, in San Diego, California. We hope to see you there.
