What We Do
Educate78 works for all Oakland kids, and helps more families, especially those
traditionally failed by the system, get the public education they dream of and deserve.
Why It Matters
All Oakland kids deserve equitable access to quality education. We must take collective responsibility to reimagine, create, and improve a public education system where success is not predicted by race and class.
67% of students not on track in math and reading— and higher for students of color
21% teacher turnover every year— and worse for teachers of color
90% of Oakland schools are not considered «quality» schools per state standards
