Acting at a public meeting, Oakland’s state overseers recently blocked a Reparations for Black Students resolution that would have protected neighborhood schools from being permanently closed. Under state control since 2003, the school district has already closed about 20 schools under the guidance of the state acting through the Fiscal Crisis Management and Assistance Team (FCMAT) and a state trustee.
