WE NEED YOUR VOICE
9/11 Oakland School Board Meeting
Wednesday, September 11; 4PM
La Esquelita, 1050 2nd Ave
Join the Justice 4 Oakland Students coalition in shutting down the OUSD School Board Meeting on September 11th.
OUSD is knee jerk ramming a plan through to close or merge schools most in need of additional resources and mostly made up of students of color particularly black students. There is no evidence it will save any money nor that it will improve the quality of education. But it is clear it will negatively impact students in impoverished communities.
J40S is the most powerful coalition in Oakland representing citizens, teachers and educational activists of Oakland, not the charter industry. It includes the teachers union, Kids First, PLAN, Equity Allies, Educators for Democratic Schools, Teachers for Social Justice, Californians for Justice, Public Advocates, AYPAL, Parents United for Public Schools, Youth Together, Parent Voices Oakland and others.
Our Wellstone Education Committee is a strong supporter of J40S and its call for action. Please see the attached infographic.
