After an agreement could’t be made earlier today Oakland Unified School District’s 3,000 teachers are set to strike at 6:30 a.m. Thursday! The teachers and the Oakland Education Association are asking for a 12 percent raise and the highest the district has gone so far is 8.5 percent.
We all agree that our Teachers should and need to be paid more for all the work they do!
WE ❤️ OUR TEACHERS!
While a strike is basically unavoidable at this point take a look below at a list of “safe spaces” our friends at KTVU put together where students can go during the strike daily 8am – 3pm and lunch will be provided!
The following rec centers will be open
- Arroyo Viejo
- Carmen Flores
- Ira Jenkins
- FM Smith
- Golden Gate
- San Antonio
- Redwood Heights
