There is so much at stake for Oakland children and youth in this election.
Four of seven school board seats are being contested. The school board controls a $600 million annual budget and makes key decisions about goals, curriculum, and programs for students. There are also three key measures that will bring much needed resources to our public schools.
Our network of families and educators has interviewed candidates, and we've researched the state and local initiatives.
Measure J will bring $475 million to ensure Oakland schools are safe and healthy, and that students and teachers have the technology they need. Here's an article from the Bay Citizen
about the improvements to school kitchens and food that Measure J will bring to our children.
Voting YES on both Propositions 30 and 38 ensures that our public schools don't face more unacceptable cuts to core programs.
