Oakland OEA teachers, students and parents rallied and marched on April 24, 2018 for a contract that would allow the teachers to continue to work in Oakland. After a year of negotiation the district has only offered a 1% increase.

Oakland Education Association OEA teachers have been without a contract for over a year and all the management has offered is a 1% increase in pay. Many public school teachers are being forced to leave the school district due to gentrification and very low salaries. They rallied at the Lake Merritt Amphitheater and marched to the school district office on April 24, 2018 and spoke out about their issues. They also discussed the siphoning off of education funds to charter schools. The privatizer supporters of charters have taken complete control of the school board and are pushing for a total charter district that would destroy all public schools.
