The Aegis Asks: How did the “Educators’ Day Out” affect you?
On Monday, Dec. 10, most of the teachers at Oakland High took a day off school to protest their lack of a contract. Some students came to school, where they said they watched movies in the theater or played games. Other students joined their teachers in the protest. Others stayed home. We asked some members of the school community how the “Educators’ Day Out” affected them.
“When we got to City Hall we met up with other schools that went on strike as well, such as Madison Park and Fremont High.” –Danica Nguyen
“I’m also hopeful for the next steps so that teachers will be supported. I’m really frustrated with the district for not doing anything and taking action.” –Sarah Pallito, science teacher
