Taking a stance on public education
on October 6, 2010
In preparation of the Nov. 2 election, Great Oakland Public Schools–a nonprofit social welfare organization–is offering a mayoral voter guide on its website to showcase each candidate’s stance on various education issues. The information is offered in the form of individual video interviews with the candidates, who were asked what their thoughts were on issues such as how to attract and retain teachers in the public schools, and how they envisioned their role as an advocate for students.
Visit the Great Oakland Public Schools website to view the videos and learn more about the mayoral candidates.
