Re: “School Closures Drive Oakland School Board Races

I'm very disappointed by this one-sided reporting from Mr. Gammon. The article assumes--without any analysis or actual numbers--that school closures are common sense and paints those who oppose them as misguided, idealistic neophytes. Had Mr. Gammon done his homework like Katy Murphy of the Oakland Tribune, he would know that closing Lazear Elementary and reopening it as a charter actually cost the district millions of dollars. ("According to a fiscal analysis by district staff, approving the charter would cost OUSD $1.4 million" -- see http://www.ibabuzz.com/education/2012/04/2…;). We need experienced, thoughtful school board members who will analyze the fiscal and educational rationale behind each decision, instead of accepting without question the wisdom of Superintendent Smith's recommendations as Mr. Gammon appears to do.
