Informing Equity, an Education Resource Strategies (ERS) study commissioned by the Oakland Achieves Partnership, examines data for the 2014-15 school year from district-run and charter schools in Oakland across three key dimensions: student need, resource levels, and resource use. Guided by a Citywide Study Steering Committee of Oakland district leaders, charter leaders, and education advocates, the purpose of the study was to build a shared fact base as a first step in helping Oakland stakeholders explore new opportunities and solutions to challenges in the education sector. The report reflects a snapshot of financial and student-level data, and except where stated, does not speculate on intentions.
