Executive Summary of the report:
Building a District Wide Schools Movement — Case Study
On April 2, 2009, the Annenburg Institute for School Reform at Brown University and Oakland Community Organizations (PICO affiliate) released a new report entitled “Building a Districtwide Small Schools Movement: Oakland Community Organizations”. It documents how parents, teachers and concerned community members from OCO launched a campaign to improve the overcrowded, unsafe, and underperforming schools in the city’s flatlands that, 10 years later, has resulted in the creation of 48 small schools, serving primarily low-income students of color. Findings may be of interest to others engaged in education reform.
