Dean of Boalt and Reed Hastings of Netflix Co-Chair U.S. Dept of Ed Equity and Excellence Commission.

The Department of Education formed the commission in response to a congressional request in the fiscal year 2010 Consolidated Appropriations Act. It met for the first time in public Feb. 22 in Washington, D.C. to discuss the scope of its work, outreach efforts, and a timetable for completing its report. The commission will hold other public meetings and at least four town hall meetings across the country to discuss the causes and effects of school finance disparities.

Edley, Berkeley Law’s dean since 2004 will co-chair the commission with Reed Hastings, who co-founded Netflix in 1997, is an active educational philanthropist and board member of many nonprofits, and was president of the California State Board of Education from 2000 to 2004.

wonder if Edley is doing anything about this story regarding students, alumni at Boalt?
