This is a guest post from Oakland public school student Alejandra Lopez-Herrera of Energy Convertors.
The Oakland Ed Week in Review 4/29/23-5/5/23
The news from Oakland this week is all about the OEA strike, with updates from various sources (be sure to check out our roundup of stories we published during the 2019 OEA strike); also, check out news from around the state and the nation.
The last time OEA went on strike
When teachers represented by the Oakland Education Association (OEA) went on strike in 2019, Great School Voices published a series of articles covering different perspectives — most importantly from students — on the strike and what it impacted. As OEA begins another strike today, we wanted to share with you those articles to help us remember and learn from the past.
