Alice Walker Stands With Oakland Educators

To The Teachers of Oakland (from Alice Walker) — Dear Teachers of Oakland, I am honored to have been asked to speak to you today, or, in the event, to send you a message of solidarity and support. As many of you know, having read my work over the years (hopefully!) Teachers are some of my favorite people.  I have a deep respect for you.  A deep caring that you are treated fairly.  That you are treated well.

Statement From OEA President Keith Brown on OUSD Spin Regarding Bargaining

(February 18, 2019) In an attempt to undermine the unity of Oakland teachers and parents, the Superintendent and her spokesman have alleged that the union is the barrier to resolving this dispute. Don’t believe their spin. For nearly three months, OUSD has said they have a “new,” “improved,” “substantial,” and now “comprehensive” proposal to make.
