Small School Report

Posted by novometro on September 24, 2007

Oakland Unified School District has opened 48 small schools since 2003. Based on models pioneered in New York and Chicago, the small schools were designed to reform Oakland’s overcrowded failing schools in the flatlands. The first major evaluation of Oakland’s small school experiment is on the school board agenda for Wednesday.

The outside evaluators present a generally positive report as well as some interesting demographics. Small schools serve a student population that is 53 percent Latino, 38 percent English language learners, and so poor that 78 percent are eligible for a free or reduced price lunch.
