EMPOWERED PARENTS AND CHILDREN SPEAK OUT TO SAVE QEIA

On May 23, members of the Oxnard community rallied at the school board meeting to object to eliminating the QEIA program, which the board was threatening to do. Oxnard Elementary School District has had 5 elementary schools and 2 intermediate schools participating in QEIA. In response to the organized effort by teachers, parents, and students, the board confirmed they had found the money to support the QEIA program. "It was the presence of parents with their children, and their insistence on speaking to the board, that made the difference in the debate about keeping the QEIA program", said Robin Lefkovits, President, Oxnard Education Association.
