The event flyer for a Wednesday evening discussion on the subject poses a different question, one that sounds sort of odd considering the school district’s notorious drop-out rate:
“Are Oakland students 100% Graduated, 100% Prepared?”
I’m not sure I could name one school district which could answer that question affirmatively. But district staff will also ask more nuanced questions Wednesday night, such as what the audience thinks about the district’s priorities, its “learning expectations” of the students and “how to ensure that schools prepare all students to achieve their dreams after high school.”
This is an issue that has arisen time and time again on this forum, so I figured you might be interested. The event is from 6-9 p.m. at Oakland High School’s Theater A, 1023 MacArthur Blvd., at Park Boulevard.
