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.

New OUSD Bargaining Proposal (2/19/2019)

From OEA President Keith Brown: Today we received a bargaining proposal from the district, which our bargaining team has reviewed. While we believe this proposal continues to fall short of reinvesting in our schools at the levels our students deserve, our bargaining team has agreed to meet with the district’s negotiators tomorrow morning to review it together and ask clarifying questions. We will bring you a bargaining update after the meeting. In the meantime stay united, and continue your preparations to walk the line for the schools our students deserve.
