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.
