CCISCO's insight:

Hoping to encourage more kids to graduate high school and pursue college, Oakland Unified School District announced Wednesday an expanded program of career internships for high schoolers and enlisted the help of the Peralta Community College District and the City of Oakland.  The three institutions agreed to make “Linked Learning” opportunities possible for all high school seniors with the hope that as many as 80 percent of them will participate. However, officials did not commit any additional funding to the effort.

Linked learning is one of the new reform efforts in education and is rising in popularity nationwide. It combines rigorous academic curricula with internships in workplaces so that students experience how their studies might have practical value. Currently about half of OUSD high school students are offered linked learning in such locations as hospitals, a TV studio, architectural firms, computer firms and city agencies.

All Aboard the School Success Express! | Parents and Community Members get Together to Plan Better Opportunities at Schools

CCISCO's insight:

“The core of the new Local Control Funding Formula is just that: local control,” said California Superintendent of Public Instruction Tom Torlakson. “Parental and community involvement remains key to student success, perhaps now more than ever. We all need to look closely, together, at the outcomes we want for our students and make sure that all students – no matter where they come from, where they live or what challenges or opportunities they have – receive a world-class education and graduate ready to contribute.”
