Castlemont March 19th Action


In solidarity with students at Richmond High School, Skyline High School and Castlemont High School,  Fremont high school students wore orange jumpsuits to symbolize the disporportionate spending in education and incarceration.

Richmond High School Youth Together Students in support of the LCFF!

The students dressed in prison jumpsuits March 19th, 2013 to bring attention to the fact that the state of California invests more in prisons than public education.

We need more money for Schools NOT Prisons!

Education NOT Incarceration!!

Pass the LCFF!!


Students from Skyline High School voice their opinions about their school’s lack of funding and how it impacts their ability to learn. All the more reason to pass the Local Control Funding Formula. More money for districts with a high concentration of ELL students, foster youth and students who qualify for free and/or reduced lunch. #LCFF


Oakland Unified School District spends an average of $7,000 per student. Guess how much the state spends on incarceration? pass #LCFF
