The stories above are just a few of the articles we published this week, and represent a fraction of those we would like to run. Among other things, we want to delve into city decision making, examine school policies on bullying and out-of-district students, look at how certain Berkeley business districts could be turned around, and bring you more hard data on neighborhood crime.

Investigative stories like this require resources. We can’t research and write them without your support. Please help us continue to break news and give the community a voice by becoming a Berkeleyside supporter — for as little as $5 a month. By doing so, you will be helping to champion local, independent journalism in this city we all call home. Thank you.
