The Changing Face of Public Education

Broadcast date: 11/20/2014

The San Luis Obispo County Office of Education provides academic and financial support for more than 35,000 students, over 10 districts, in 75 public schools. The Office is administered by the County Superintendent of Schools, a locally elected position, currently held by Dr. Julian Crocker. This January, after serving three consecutive four-year terms as County Superintendent, Dr. Julian Crocker will be relinquishing his position and Dr. Jim Brescia, will succeed him.

With this change on the horizon, what critical issues is our public school system facing, if any? What are some of our most recent successes? What challenges are in our future?

Join host Fred Munroe as he speaks with current Superintendent of Schools for San Luis Obispo County, Dr. Julian Crocker, as well as incoming Superintendent Dr. Jim Brescia as they discuss the past, present, and future of public education.

Central Coast Voices is sponsored by ACTION for Healthy Communities in collaboration with KCBX.
