School Safety Oakland

School Safety

Our students need safe, secure campuses free from vandalism, intruders and crime. I’ll continue supporting after-school and enrichment activities that reduce bullying and give kids a well-rounded education.

Please join our effort to clean up the streets around our schools and sign-up for our Trash Clean-Up Saturdays on our Volunteer page.

Student Achievement

Our schools must prepare students for success, whether it is university admission or being qualified to get a well-paying job. We must continue reducing dropout rates and increasing graduation rates and test scores.

East Oakland Educational Equality

Our East Oakland schools must be able to recruit highly qualified teachers and receive our fair share of funding and other resources—I’ll continue to fight for you.
