Re: “Adult Education Dismantled

Thanks for this article Scott. The more aware the Oakland Community is about what is happening to adult education, the better the chances that people can and will do something about bringing it back. Shands alone has been responsible for over 5000 Oakland students earning high school diplomas. It's not a pretty picture to imagine all of these future students not having the opportunity to get what they need in order to succeed in our society. Elaine Brooks

Re: “Perata Knew Ranked Voting Posed Him Problems

Perata may have been good at getting large donations from the police, prison guards and firefighters, but I bet Jean Quan had far more individual donations than Perata did. If Perata cared so much about our votes, he could have turned out at more candidate forums. He didn't even show up at the Oakland Education Association political action committee interviews of candidates. Jean Quan and Rebecca Kaplan not only participated, but came well prepared. Roughly 1500 Oakland teachers live and vote in Oakland, plus all the parents and others with whom they have contact.
