Today at 3:30 p.m. Mission District students and families plan to march through the neighborhood to publicly state that “attending college is the expectation, not the exception, for Mission district students.” Mission Graduates, a local non-profit that works to increase the number of K-12 students prepared for a college education, helped organize the event.
