Learning in Golden Gate

Our goal for this research project was to create an audio-visual map of the learning resources in the Golden Gate neighborhood. We tried to look at this story from as many angles as possible in an effort to present an accurate picture of learning in this historic, working-class, urban Oakland neighborhood. In addition to collecting data, we sought the perspectives of residents, teachers and parents. Click on the interviews to the right and the maps, infographics and slideshows below to see what we found. We invite your feedback below!

This project was a joint effort between students from UC Berkeley’s Graduate School of Journalism, Graduate School of Education, Department of Anthropology, Goldman School of Public Policy and Haas School of Business. For more on how we designed and executed the project, please read our background story.
