inside district attorney's offices there are people working to research and understand how people are wrongly convicted. today in the four by four we are taking four minutes to understand how they work. we are joined by lucy carter, policy directer for the northern california innocence project. thank you for coming in to talk about this. we have one of these units, how do they work? >> they vary a great deal. in santa clara county we work with the person in charge of the unit. a da in charge. if we find out about a case that we are concerned about where we think the person convicted is innocent we will contact that da and work with him to decide whether it was a
wrongful conviction or not. >> are they doing this on their own without you making the phone call? >> it varies. typically we or another innocence project will initiate the contact with the district attorney's office but there are some da officers that are looking at cases to try to understand whether there has been a number. >> since 1989 in california more than 200 people have been wrongfully convicted. talking serious offenses, murder, rape, nationally it is estimated to be hundreds of thousands. how many people who are wrongfully convicted are being exonerated and how many through this program? >> it turns out since 1989 there have been 1,669 exonerations. we know if they were all properly done and they did warrant exoneration that is a
lot of innocent people who were wrongfully convicted. in the last year there were 125 exonerations. this is nationwide. there were a handful in california. and of those 125, 49 happened through conviction review programs and this is a new trend. in the past the programs haven't existed. most programs have been around for a year, year and a half -- >> what type of crimes? >> they vary a great deal. it could be murders, rapes or other sexual assaults. those are the ones that have the longest sents. >> which -- sentences -- [ talking at the same time ] >> varies. it could be single digits to 30
years. >> friday, what happened friday? >> friday we had a symposium and we invited leaders from around the country, including california to talk about their programs and -- so that we could exchange information and learn more about what they do and talk about best practices, what should the programs be doing, to learn from mistakes so we can reform the system. >> what did you learn about the latter? >> about reforming -- >> yeah. >> again, varies from program to program whether they are learning from incorporating what they be learned from review into your reform. we know there are practices around eyewitness identification that could be done in a way that reduces the risk of identifying the wrong person. those are the things that are
coming up as a result of the exonerations and then if we take that information and go back and change practices we hope we will have fewer wrongful convictions. >> who was at the symposium on friday? once someone is exonerated do we know what happens in the district attorney's office's there has to be self-chuck. >> absolutely. we had a great audience at the symposium and wonderful speakers. we had almost as many prosecutors as defense attorneys. we are associated more with the defense side -- [ talking at the same time ] >> so -- we had many people, judges, professors, students, representatives from the california legislator, their
staff, wide variety of people. [ talking at the same time ] >> you prosecuted the prong person, is there -- the wrong person, is there a self-check? >> some programs are internal programs. it is prosecutors looking at what prosecutors have done. in other incidences they bring in the defense, they include outside reviewers who comment on the case. and we find that that is a preferred model because then it guarantees more neutrality. it is more difficult when you are looking from the inside -- >> if i am a district attorney and i close the door to you, i am sure district attorneys say we are fine, what would you tell me? >> if we are handling the case we hope there would be an open exchange of discovery so we could get to the solution. the goal is to get justice.
we prefer the doors are own and the exchange of information is open and mutual and that is what we would ask for. >> all right. thank you very much. appreciate you coming in and having the conversation with us. policy directser for the northern california innocence project. >> thank you. you can find out more by visiting www.ktvu.com, click on web links. reshaping how teachers teach and now we are getting a look at how students are doing under common core. talking to a bay area education advocate about the take aways from the first test results. >> tracking the forecast. it includes cooler numbers. we will have the details on clouds and lower temperatures. >> a live look outside. traffic. 880 in oakland. not bad. 92 across the san mateo bridge. looking good. the four on 2 will be right back.

english, 21% met math standards. ryan smith here now. thank you for being here. >> thank you. >> let's talk about the results. i am reading educators saying you can't compare these results to past because the testing is so different and it should be looked at as a starting point. do you agree with that? >> it is a baseline year. we can't compare it to the star test. this test is very different. you remember when you used to bubble in tests, that is no longer the case. if you do better you get a harder question, if you don't you get a not as hard question -- [ talking at the same time ] >> we can't just guess the way we used to before. when you look at the results it
is sobering, not surprising. [ indiscernible ] >> we have work to do to close achievement gaps. >> talk about what do you think the results say about the instruction happening in the classroom to all students and those from low income or minority students. >> i will say this: we are asking our teachers to get our students college and career ready, to do more emphasis and deeper learning. that means we have to support teachers differently. particularly in the highest need schools. we know that our students were behind. in the state of california, california state universities, over half of those students take remedial courses their freshman year. we have a ways to go to get students through college. >> what is missing? are students aren't able to
learn, teachers don't know how to teach, what is failing? >> never say students are failing. they are the best resource in the state. we have to look at the system. we need to ask our teachers to teach in our toughest communities, that is one. number two, provide more resources. number three, we need to think about how we are going to close achievement gaps. >> the state superintendent said the new standards are a challenge for students to learn and for schools to teach. but we are raising the bar. my question is, is raising the bar leaving children behind? >> i believe that we should have high expectations. i believe they will meet the expectations. we ever to do things differently. we have to look at the best
practices across the state. there are 20 schools that have a majority of low income children that met and exceeded standards. it is happening -- >> we need to look at those schools -- [ talking at the same time ] >> and share the information. >> and support educators more. i think we did a good job in the first investment but we need to put more money into this. training them. making sure that we have a tip of technology to support this. i believe that we can close achievement gaps gaps, this is an issue in our schools and we need to come together to solve this problem. >> ryan smyth, thank you so much. >> thank you. colorado had a nice victory over the weekend. i wanted to say that.
