Strategy and Analysis to Defend and Transform Public Education

Budget Cuts To Kids Are Not Necessary!

We’ve been hearing a lot of news from OUSD about how cuts to schools and kids are necessary.  So we’ll need to keep saying the truth… they are not necessary! Not when OUSD has overspent on admin and contracts as much as it has. Not when, to avoid a state takeover, only $1.4 million needs to be cut, not the $15 million they’re planning.  Basically, not when you actually prioritize Oakland students and the staff that support them.  For more info please check out this powerpoint (also linked below at the image).  We helped put this together and it has been going out to OEA members and more.  Feel free to share.  We need to get educated and remember: Budget cuts to kids are not necessary!
