OUR MISSION

Our Mission

Families in Action for Quality Education was founded in 2019 to raise awareness about education disparities in Oakland and to increase students’ and families’ access to quality schools and equitable resources. Our work has four pillars: We build the leadership capacity of parents, youth, educators and school board members. We fight for underserved students to gain access to quality school experiences. We champion a vision for high quality schools for ALL students, no matter if they attend district or charter schools. We believe equitable access to quality education is a fundamental driver for a healthy city and we build powerful coalitions with community, city and faith organizations to achieve that goal.

Our Vision

We envision an Oakland public school ecosystem, in which all schools see families as critically important to student success and where the entire school community is accountable for the education of all students. In our vision, more than 95 percent of high school students will graduate A-G ready and more than 80 percent of elementary and middle school students – regardless of race, culture, identity, or zip code – will meet grade level proficiency in mathematics and ELA.
