Education is not a traveling road show


I was shocked and dismayed to learn that the Alameda Unified School District (AUSD) is floating proposals to move Alameda Community Learning Center ("ACLC") at the end of this school year. This is a mere one year after the school board voted to rip ACLC from its moorings at Encinal High School, over strong opposition of the ACLC community.

ACLC has spent well over $100,000 in the latest move, as well as innumerable hours in improving its new facilities at Wood Middle School with the expectation that it would remain there at least for the time being. I would like to take the opportunity to remind the School Board and Superintendent Kirsten Vital that when any of our schools are devalued, the whole community is devalued.

ACLC is not a traveling road show and deserves better than this.
