Parents, students and teachers from Roots International Academy at 66th Avenue and International Boulevard in East Oakland turned out for the Oakland Board of Education meeting Wednesday evening to stand up in defense of their neighborhood school. The district administration is moving forward, without waiting for school board approval or consultation with the families, with plans to shut down the school and scatter the students to neighboring schools.
