Join the rally this Monday, Nov. 27th @5:30 pm, at La Escuelita School auditorium, 1050 2nd Ave., (near E. 10th St).
The OUSD only legally needs to “adjust” $1.2 million in the budget to avoid state takeover, but they have unanimously voted to adjust $15.1 million. The plan that the school board and superintendent have developed for the “adjustment” calls for cutting $5.6 million directly from school sites and $9.5 million from the central office. Charter schools are excluded from these cuts, despite receiving tax dollars. Principals have been instructed to submit how they are going to cut their school’s budget and the school board will be voting to finalize these cuts on November 27th.
The Oakland Greens will have a table at the event — email us at: firstname.lastname@example.org to volunteer to help register folks or to get more involved with this campaign!
NO CUTS TO KIDS! No state takeover under any conditions. No school closures. No more charters. California is the 6th largest economy in the world, but 46th in school spending out of 50 states.
ALL OUT TO THE OAKLAND SCHOOL BOARD MEETING: NOV. 27 @5:30 pm!
Please forward widely.
