Education in Oakland

Arson, Soccer, and Test Scores

Posted by novometro on March 28, 2007

Arson damaged Peralta Elementary school late Monday night. The highly dedicated Peralta family is moving fast to fix the damage. You can make a donation to speed the progress here.

The 50,000 soccer fans expected to cheer on Mexico in its match against Ecuador at the Coliseum tonight points to a possible purpose for the stadium when the A’s are in Fremont and the Raiders are back in LA.

There was little good news for OUSD yesterday when the California Department of Education released  test scores for 2006. Four out of 10 Oakland schools are in the bottom 10 percent statewide. According to the Tribune, that’s not much better than years before. The article did point to bright spots, including the Think College Now elementary school in Fruitvale.
