“Out Here Because I Love Teaching”: The Oakland Teachers Strike, In Photos

Brooke Anderson

Thousands of teachers in Oakland, California, went on strike this morning—the latest in a series of increasingly militant work stoppages by educators across the country.

In January, teachers in Los Angeles, California, won a historic strike, securing smaller class sizes, a nurse in every school, a reduction in standardized testing, a 6 percent pay raise for teachers and a plan for the School Board to vote to call on the state to cap charter school growth.

Hurray for California! Not only do they have a first rate Nurses Union but now Teachers too! Hope they get what they’re asking for - and while they’re asking maybe they can ask for the resignation of Betsy DeVos as well! Thanks for the article.
