‘I Feel Invisible’: Native Students Languish in Public Schools

School Visits:

 

Oakland:

  • Children flee violence in home countries, seek asylum at Oakland school
    • “In the Trump era, our work is just as important as it has always been,” said Lauren Markam, Oakland International’s community school program manager. “Our mission and work has not changed. However, we do believe that offering a safe, supportive, positive environment for newcomer students to learn, grow and set roots in this country is all the more important now, when immigrants are being weaponized and used as pawns for political gain.”
  • Golden State Warriors To Host Oakland Public School Students On Christmas Day
    • The two-time defending NBA champion Golden State Warriors will host 32 students from Oakland public schools for a special game experience on Christmas Day when the team takes on the Los Angeles Lakers.
  • College Access & Success Symposium
    • The Association of Black Admissions and Financial Aid Officers of the Ivy League and Sister Schools (ABAFAOILSS) invites you to attend our College Access & Success Symposium. College representatives from some of America’s top institutions will provide valuable insight and advice during workshops on the college admission and financial aid application processes. The program will include workshops for secondary school counselors and high school students and parents simultaneously.
