Check out GO Public Schools’ co-founder and Chief Executive Officer Jonathan Klein‘s interview with Michael Vaughn, Director of Communications for Education Post.
The two talked about the progress that Oakland’s schools have made over the past five years, the work the city as a whole has done to prepare more of our students for college and career — specifically our most underserved youth — and the role GO has played in including more voices in the conversation about our schools.
“We have reasons to be hopeful—and we have a long way to go.
If you’re an African-American or Latino child in Oakland, your chances of ending up a high-school graduate are substantially better than they would have been five years ago. That’s a really big deal, and it’s taken a lot of hard work—by teachers and principals, by kids and families—to make that happen.”
