The school board ended last year with a $30 mil surplus and this year their budget increased by $78 mil. None of that went to our classrooms! Now they’re talking cuts. In the middle of our strike. Nope!


The Oakland Education Association is committed to improve wages, working conditions, and professional standards for all of our unit members. Our aim is to ensure effective teaching and learning in all classrooms in the City of Oakland.
