"Do we starve our public neighborhood schools so that they are cut and privatized or do we re-invest in our public neighborhood schools for our students and for a thriving city? Oakland teachers say re-investment. And we #StandWithOaklandTeachers #WeAreOakland #Unite4OaklandKids"

"In California a charter school law from 25 years ago has been used by billionaires to make a charter school industry. Charters show a lack of transparency. Our most vulnerable students are not served by many corporate charters. This affects students in Oakland. #Unite4OaklandKids"

"It's time for OUSD to pick a side. Are you on the side of billionaires who fund our school board races, or the side of teachers, students, parents, and community? #Unite4OaklandKids"
