A data-based look at Oakland public schools
(All schools with 70% of their students meeting or exceeding standards in either Math or ELA or both on Spring 2016 SBAC)
In a city in which almost three-fourths of public school students are eligible for free or reduced lunch, we all can learn a lot from these schools. And, even these schools have a long way to go to have all their students meeting or exceeding standards – which is, of course, what everyone is striving for. Oakland’s public school enrollment season is about to begin, and we know that parents and guardians need honest, in-depth, and up-to-date school data. We hope this helps parents make informed choices, and schools to promote their successes.”
Up next time: schools with high ELL populations outperforming OUSD’s average.
