Powerful footage of principal (and BayCES board member) David Silver testifying before congress about “equity in action” at Think College Now Elementary in Oakland, CA.
BayCES has served as a critical partner to David in founding the school in 2003, developing its collaborative and supportive culture, and “creat[ing] the conditions to support achievement for all students.”
“This school would not exist if it were not for BayCES. If someone tells me they want to start or redesign a school, I tell them they have to work with BayCES. BayCES helped us build a community that was the foundation of our academic success – they create the conditions for success. A big value-add is that BayCES coaches’ expertise and experience are at a really high level. I always knew when I wasn’t sure about something, that they were the people I trusted who I could turn to for help.” – David Silver, 2008
