Teachers, Parents, Students, Community:
March to the OUSD Board of Education Meeting and Speak-OUT!
Wednesday, February 25th
- Demand a Strong Contract for Oakland Teachers!
- No Union Busting Attacks on Seniority and Transfer Rights!
- For Smaller Class Sizes and Protections for Special Education Programs!
- Defend Public Education!
Oakland teachers are fighting for a strong contract with a guaranteed wage increase that will allow teachers to stay in Oakland. The District is receiving more state funding for Oakland schools than in many years, and funding is projected to rise but the money is being spent on outside contractors, Central Administration, and other projects outside the classroom. The Oakland Education Association (OEA) is fighting for smaller class sizes and hard caps on Special Education caseloads. We are fighting for lower Counselor to student ratios. We will not accept the union busting attacks that Superintendent Wilson and the District Bargaining Team are making on existing seniority and transfer protections. We oppose the reconstitution of schools – making teachers, aides, and other school staff reapply for their own jobs; we oppose the conversion of any public schools to charter schools.
We stand united with students and families in defense of quality public education accessible to all the young people in Oakland
