Our Policy Priorities
- Elections: We research and endorse school board candidates to ensure that school board leaders are effective, pragmatic, and have a sense of urgency to make tough decisions to increase quality school options for our families now. And we provide information about other education-related elections (see menu to the left).
- School Board Watch: School board meetings are where the policy, politics, and business of the district happen that affect all our schools. GO's affiliated Leadership Center monitors every school board meeting and publishes need-to-know information and analyses to ensure a transparent, accountable school system.
We must invest in strategies and initiatives to improve student outcomes. Check out this infographic of our 2014 policy platform - short and long-term goals to improve Oakland's public schools. Our students deserve education champions willing to stand up for them.
