They Flipped these skoolz for a little bread

The closing of schools in East Oakland has quickly erupted and teachers and students are upset. “If I die, I want the district to know my death was at your hands,” said San-Chez. San-Chez is a teacher who is on a hunger strike, because schools are being closed for no reason exactly.

They say it's because of budget cuts. But from what the people think, there is no budget problem.

In my school we move different. We don't take money from OUSD, we don't call the police, and we don't call CPS. I believe charter schools are a waste. Charter schools were accused of cherry picking.

Charters are privatized, yet take public funds.

Conclusion: I believe that these schools deserve to be open. All people deserve to learn and most of these students were black and brown and homeless so maybe they go to school to have a peace of mind. These OUSD are pimpin and they flipped these schools for a little bit of bread.

ALL OUT TO OAKLAND CITY HALL THURSDAY (Feb. 17th) at NOON
