Parent, Teacher & Student Sit-In at Lakeview Elementary to Save Oakland Schools, 6/15/12: photos
Dave Id
On June 15th, the last day of classes for this school year, parents, teachers, students, and allies commenced a sit-in at Lakeview Elementary school on Grand Avenue to protest the closure of five Oakland schools, including Lakeview. The other four neighborhood schools set to close are Santa Fe, Maxwell Park, Lazear, and Marshall Elementary, all flatland schools serving predominantly black and brown children. To kick off the indefinite sit-in, a barbeque was held, followed by a press conference. The photos below reflect the scene at dusk later in the evening.
