My Story

My son used to attend a low performing school. He was on the waitlist for a better school for THREE YEARS. I could choose a better school but I did not have access to a better school. When I finally got a spot at that better school, he was behind and had to play catch up.

I joined The Oakland REACH because I got a phone call that parents were fighting for better and I was not alone. My younger children will have better.
