Classroom Struggle is proud to announce our slate of candidates running for OEA Executive Board Elections in May! We are excited about the opportunity this election brings to open conversations among OEA members about how we can build union power and play a strong role in developing a united teacher/staff/parent/student movement in Oakland for the defense and transformation of public schools. Your support is integral in these developments.

We are running based on the core belief that Oakland teachers are rich in wisdom and commitment and that OEA has the potential to be a powerful force in creating the schools Oakland teachers & students deserve. In order to play this role, we believe we need AN INSPIRED & ACTIVE MEMBERSHIP and STRONG ALLIANCES WITH STUDENTS, PARENTS, SCHOOL WORKERS & COMMUNITY. You can read our full platform here.
