We believe in a community of schools for all Oakland kids. This means that district and charter public schools – as well as other stakeholders across the city – must work together, communicate openly, and engage fairly, fulfilling their obligations to serve all kids, and addressing the racist and oppressive systems that have plagued our city for too long. This is the collective responsibility we talk of in our North Star.
To build a vibrant and quality community of schools:
Only by recognizing that we are all part of one Oakland community will we get to the quality schools our students deserve.
