Students from Nadirah Moreland and Jonas Zuckerman’s
Education Academy & World Cultures classes participated
in a Sister Cities project at Oakland Technical High School.
They researched youth issues in various developing countries
where Oakland has a Sister Cities relationship. The groups
chose the issue of child prostitution in Brazil as their
focal point for action and research because of the extremity
of the issue and its overarching impact on AIDS, health
care, lack of educational opportunities and child labor.
