Congratulations to all at the Oracle - this is a tremendous honor. But more importantly, it is tremendously important that the paper and the students working on it are reporting issues of great relevancy to Gunn students and parents. The article and photos about the 65 at-risk PAUSD families that own homes at Buena Vista is notable, touching upon so many issues of opportunity through education, economic and ethnic diversity, affordable housing, gentrification, etc.

Well done.
