Members of the Don't Hold Us Back coalition of parent and civil rights organizations visited Oakland on Feb 28 to share their experiences with local education advocates who are working to improve Oakland’s public schools. We joined Oakland’s All Kids Campaign for a discussion about the path to ensure sure every child has access to a quality public school. Oakland’s All Kids Campaign is a collaboration of parents, community, faith and education leaders working to ensure that Oakland’s school district creates conditions that provide equity and opportunity for our kids
Jason Mandell and Sandy Mendoza from Communities for Teaching Excellence, Vanessa Rodriguez from Alliance for a Better Community and Lisa Ruben from United Way led a discussion about how our efforts in LA can serve as a model for Oakland. The Don't Hold Us Back campaignled to a plan to allow all schools to adopt autonomies that help educators have a greater voice n how their school works, with support from the parents and community.
