OAKLAND, Calif. - Jan. 15, 2019 - PRLog -- On Friday January 18th, 2019 teachers from Fremont High School, along with  teachers all across Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) will be holding another "sick-out". Just like the last sick-out, this will look like multiple teachers from multiple schools calling in "sick" on Friday morning. We the teachers demand that OUSD prioritize public education for all of our students in the district.  Friday will be a small taste of what OUSD teachers on strike will look like next month. Yes, OUSD teachers are strike ready! If the district cannot handle one day without teachers, imagine what a week or more will look like.

Why are teachers ready to strike? In spite of a 30 million dollar surplus last year, the Oakland Unified School District is claiming it cannot afford to make  improvements and invest in the success of OUSD students. We the teachers demand smaller class sizes, more student supports, and a living wage. Furthermore, since learning that the district is planning to close 24 schools over the next 5 years, we are demanding an end to that too. OUR CHILDREN DESERVE BETTER.

Friday, educators, students and community members will rally at Oakland Technical High School located at 4351 Broadway, Oakland CA 94611, from 8am to 9am. From there we will march along Broadway and head to OUSD headquarters at 1000 Broadway, Oakland CA 94607 for a 10am rally.

We the teachers will not rest, until our students get the best.
