By Richard Pelayo

West Contra Costa County, where I taught for four years, is one of the lowest performing school districts in the state of California. I didn't see anyone in the community organizing parents, schools leaders  or neighbors around equitable solutions for our students, but felt increasingly certain that it must happen in order for our region to live up to its obligation to our students.
