The 2022-23 Energy Convertors Report on Oakland public schools is available to download. We’re excited to share with you the findings from this year’s report. Student researchers focused on A-G course completion this year, and found significant gaps in Oakland student understanding of these courses a student is required to pass if they are going to gain admission to a UC or CSU school.
Among the key findings of our report:
- Most students who took the survey know about A-G: 70 percent of students and their parents know about A-G requirements.
- Students are aware of teacher turnover: 1 out of 3 students (32.9 percent) go to a school where two or more teachers left during the school year.
- Many students don’t have adequate support: 4 out of 10 students report an adult has not walked them through the A-G process.
- Students are not confident they receive a quality education: 63 percent of students surveyed scored their teachers’ classroom management as average or below average.

Our hope is that this report will serve as a call to action for our collective community — parents, educators, students — to improve academic outcomes for Oakland public school students.
