Kosovo is Serbia

Kosovo is Serbia

Kosovo is Serbia 

A very few of us are aware about Kosovo existence…..there are seldom any news about the sufferings of Serbian population living in the region or about the injustice done to them by so called “super powers”.
Due to such circumstances and a lack of honest and real information shared in public we are starting our own Series on Kosovo based upon our own research work and collected data.



About katjaog

As a naturalized US citizen I love my new country and as many other legal immigrants I myself have been and still am a DREAMER. I have been actively involved in local communities for over 20 years. I have been elected by the people to: A. * The Governing Board of Education where I served as the Board Member and President for over 15 years. In this capacity I have achieved the following: 1. Introduced small class sizes - up to 20 students at elementary schools and 26 students at the middle schools 2. Strengthen and expanded the music education 3. Expanded foreign language studies by introducing : Italian and Japanese foreign languages 4. After my proposal to organize the AP programs at the High School after it was denied by all members of the Board and then Superintendent, - I organized the Study Group of the members representing other local Unified School Districts, County Office of Education and other local institutions to "tackle" this issue by discussing the values of the AP programs they students might have at this particular High School. The final outcome of this discussion opened the door for then predominantly minority students attending this particular High School to be given opportunity to enroll in the AP classes and so join the other local schools in the area that had this program for a long time. Today this school became one of the leading local schools. 5. Opened up the possibility for the minority representatives educators to join the schools' administration and management. It was a non existent at that time. 6. Supported all teachers and their union to secure their more visible presence in decision making process at the management level relative to the curriculum, classroom activities and higher salaries that would reflect their hard work and educational contribution in teaching all the students of the local Unified School District. B.* Elected College Trustee of the local College Trustee Board of Education for 4 years. 1. When I joined this Board the majority of the members lived in the most expensive local cities and the gate communities. The elections were held "at large" that actually meant only the well-to-do residents could afford running for the College Board. I won the election because of my “name recognition.” The members who represented these plush areas could not and were not aware of the needs of other cities predominantly representing the members of the minority groups. I introduced the reorganization of the election "at large" to the elections by the districts/cities areas. As a Treasurer of the local chapter of NAACP I approached then President and other Board members to join me in the re - organizational efforts. The long work that followed was productive and successful:. Final outcome: election of "at large" was replaced by "election by the cities". Finally, all residents and local cities were represented equally!! C.* Member of the local County Democratic Central Committee for over 15 years - elected by the voters. - elected by fellow members : PR person - Vice Chair - Chair. D* Member and Vice President of the local Assembly District - AD; E. *Elected delegate to the California Democratic Party Executive Committee. F. *Appointed by then California Democratic Chair Gov. Jerry Brown to California Democratic Party Legislative Committee as a co-Chair. G.* Co-Founder of California Democratic Party Rainbow Caucus. H.* Vice Chair of California Democratic Party Rainbow Caucus. J* As a Life Member of NAACP I was a very active member and served as PR representative, Treasurer, Vice President and President of the local NAACP Chapter. In all these functions I worked hard and made significant changes that benefited many... I have always stood up and I am still standing up for the equality and the opportunity for ALL - not only for a few
