Oakland teachers were on strike on April 29th, picketing and rallying for a fair contract and against cutbacks for students. They were joined in solidarity all across Oakland by students and community members. Despite the Oakland Unified School District offering scabs $300 for the day, schools were effectively shut down. While Oakland teachers made a strong showing today, where this leaves the Oakland Education Association in their fight against the school board remains to be seen after the board imposed a contract without their consent on April 21st. Undoubtedly, the struggle will continue.

"Honk if you care" at Oakland High School. Lots of honking as cars passed; not so much going on inside the school this day. Report was that three or four scabs were supervising not more than ten students at this location.
