Can Oakland schools catch a break?
Yesterday morning, Webster Academy employees showed up to school and discovered that 22 brand new computers — still in boxes — had vanished from a locked storage room, district spokesman Troy Flint told me.
Flint said the thieves apparently pried their way in with bolt-cutters.
Then, a teacher at Rise Community School wrote me to report that someone broke into the main office of the East Oakland school over Labor Day weekend. The intruder tried to steal a computer, but couldn’t make it over the fence (whoops).
By the way, I checked with Flint today to see if the Human Resources villains had been nabbed. Not yet.
