Percentage of school district child care funds annihilated as a result: 73. Number of child care centers about to close as a result: seven. Number of children those centers served and will now be left to wander around on the streets: 500. To which we can only add, percentage of $19.1 billion state deficit relieved by the denial of Oakland child care funds: 0.00068.
