National Journal Lauds Local Schools

The national education magazine District Administration describes instruction in Long Beach classrooms as some of the best available in America. The article details the tremendous progress in student achievement, college preparation and teacher training that the Long Beach Unified School District has seen during the five-year tenure of its superintendent, Christopher J. Steinhauser. Titled “Hometown Success,” the article notes that Long Beach’s Latino, black and low-income students -- as well as the entire student population – have outperformed students in all other urban California districts in reading and math at all K-12 levels. "The instruction in Long Beach's classrooms is some of the best I've ever seen," said Megan Tupa, a researcher quoted in the magazine.
