Why Oakland Teachers Are Going to Strike

Keith Brown

Oakland teachers will be on strike this week because we can’t feed our students’ minds by starving our schools of qualified teachers and resources.

Oakland can’t afford any more years of neglected, underfunded schools. If we stand idly by while the leadership of the Oakland Unified School District closes 24 out of 86 public schools, then students and families will pay the price for generations.

Stay together, involve you’re community, and you will succeed.

Charter schools are a private business, who can choose their students—public schools take all students. People don’t have neighborhood schools anymore-----where are the school buses? Where are the neighborhood schools? The charters don’t have to fulfill what public schools do-------this just all seems like educational theft. I suppose that Betsy DeVos’ plan is to make the students so ignorant that the only job open will be as war fodder to the war gods and for people like Betsy and her brother Erik Prince.
