The other week, we visited the Highland Childhood Development Center in East Oakland for a story about the possible elimination of state-subsidized, all-day preschool for the children of low-income working (or studying) parents.
Highland did not appear on this week’s list of seven possible CDC closures in Oakland. Which ones did? Golden Gate, Hintil Kuu Ca, Jefferson, Manzanita, Piedmont Avenue, Santa Fe and Sequoia. Parker was slated for closure before the governor came out with his proposal to slash preschool funding.
(Note: District staff asked me to emphasize that the closures and cuts in the above presentation aren’t certain, but that they are being planned in case the “worst-case scenario” plays out in the Legislature.)
