Back from Vacation and the First Day of School
I’ve been on vacation for a week and a half, camping with my family up the northern California coast, so the blogs been taking a vacation too. Today was the first day of school for my daughters, both of whom are in Spanish immersion schools in Oakland. My oldest started her first day in first grade in Oakland Unified and my wife sent a lovely picture to me of her walking through the door of her classroom and my youngest watering the plants in their school garden. They’ve both been in Spanish immersion schools since they were three years old, so we are very happy to have them continue their journey to multi-lingualism.
Lots happened in my absence. Our great staff at Ed Trust West did amazing work. The state missed out on Race to the Top and we sent out a statement. We responded to the state’s release of STAR data with an equity alert. And we sent out a letter summarizing our teacher quality recommendations to the state’s leadership on both the Democratic and Republican sides. I’ll post it in my next entry.
