Action 2020 February Meeting

Action 2020 invites you to our February meeting.

It will be via Zoom on Thursday, February 18th, 6pm to 7:30pm.

We have some guests from the St. Louis school board. They have been going through heavy interference in their local schools and school board elections. The antics and ethics resemble the kind of interference we get here in Oakland from GO. The view from St. Louis is more focused on City Fund. We don’t hear about that as much here in Oakland, but our local Astroturf group called REACH is listed on the City Fund website as something they are involved in. Our guests will tell us about their situation and propose some kind of alliance to resist City Fund interference in local schools.

Also on the agenda will be an evaluation discussion of the Oakland Education Town Hall. If you missed it, you can see a recording here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XhUpH2sDNKY. A Spanish version is available here as well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YCAOIUm3kHA

Many pro public school activists attended and many Action 2020 members helped put on this event.

What was the positive?  The negative?  Missing? And should we continue to support more such events.

We will also take some time to talk about our new school board and how we feel they are distinguishing themselves, or not. 

Action 2020 needs to set its priorities.  We are thinking of the overview of the whole budget and budget process.  The plan to re-open in person learning is also in full swing. 

There will be a consultation at the beginning of the meeting for people to propose discussion items. 

See you Thursday.
