Citing low test scores and declining enrollment, Oakland Schools Superintendent Antwan Wilson has announced a plan to revive five of Oakland's most troubled schools. Under the Intensive Support Schools Initiative, the district will invite charter organizations and other groups to submit proposals to redesign the schools and re-launch them in 2016. What will the plan mean for students, parents and teachers?
