GO Public Schools Oakland
GO Public Public Schools Oakland (GO Oakland) is a network of families, educators, and community members with a deep moral commitment to the simple idea that every kid deserves a good chance, in school and in life. There are many excellent teachers and schools in Oakland, but today, far too many students lack the education that will prepare them to thrive in their lives. We believe Oakland has the strength, commitment, and passion to do better. Together, we advocate for a school system that puts student outcomes first, demands that leaders do the same, and holds them accountable for keeping their promises.
By providing information, building leadership skills, and advocating publicly, GO Oakland’s network is working toward an Oakland where every student has access to an excellent public school. Alongside advocacy, through GO Public Schools Oakland Advocates, the GO network has played a key role in elevating the work of the school board, electing school board leaders committed to advocating for all students, and helping to pass measures to provide needed services and funds to schools.
