When East Oakland residents learned in 2011 that the Neptune Society had a permit to build a large crematorium near 98th Avenue and Interstate 880, many of them participated in a campaign to stop it.

Ever since Californians approved Proposition 13 in the late 1970s and the state started to fall far behind the rest of the nation in per-pupil spending for public education, California’s public middle schools have struggled to fund anything beyond core educational classes like English, math, science, and history. Many middle schools simply don’t have enough money to pay for electives such as arts, music, and foreign-language classes.…
