What is your history?

GO Public Schools was founded during the 2008-2009 school year by a group of families, educators, and community allies who came together in advocacy to ensure that the Oakland community had information and opportunities to shape decisions about its public schools and to hold leaders accountable. 

Our early organizing experiences in Oakland confirmed the belief that our communities have the wisdom, passion, & power to impact local education policy in the best interests of kids.

In early 2016, we began building a similar local advocacy coalition in West Contra Costa, in response to a request from a group of local education and community leaders collaborating to improve WCC's public education system.

Building on momentum from our coalitions’ successes and interest from other communities, GO Public Schools has launched a statewide effort to support families and educators in creating similar local advocacy coalitions across California to pursue equitable opportunities for all kids.
