Oakland High School

Community schools bring together resources, supports and partners to transform the learning of all students, especially our most vulnerable. In this 2023 issue of Community Schooling Journal,  from the UCLA Center for Community Schooling, the story of transformation from Oakland, California is shared. Told from the complementary perspectives of three students, a teacher, a district liaison, and a university partner, this story focuses on the pressing issue of homelessness and how a community came together to study, plan, and take action to support its young people who are unhoused.
