Oakland Unified Releases List Of Schools Facing Closure

OAKLAND (CBS) — The Oakland Unified School District released a list of schools they would like to close in the first step toward a multi-million dollar consolidation plan.

Five elementary schools are on the list: Lakeview, Lazear, Marshall, Maxwell Park and Santa Fe.

Officials schools with the fewest students will be the first to close.

District officials estimate a savings of between $200,000 and $400,000 for each school closure and higher savings from larger schools.

    If we measure outcome and results then, Government run ‘schools’ are in the business of employing teachers, school administrators, janitors and staff not educating kids.
    The system is not just broke, it is broken.
