Good afternoon, Chairman, members of the committee. I’m Carrie Hahnel, Director of Policy and Research for The Education Trust—West. We are a nonprofit advocacy group focused on closing the opportunity and achievement gaps for low-income students and students of color. I would like to thank you for the opportunity to speak on such a critical topic for our state’s students.
