'When we strike, we win': Tentative agreement reached in Oakland teacher strike

The Oakland Unified School District and a union representing striking teachers have come to a tentative agreement after a week-long teacher strike in California.

The deal an "historic no-concessions contract," according to the union comes after more than 3,000 teachers and staff walked off the job on Feb. 21. The union reports that 95 percent of our members were on the picket line and 97 percent of students were out of school during the strike.

"When we strike, we win," the Oakland Education Association‏ posted to Twitter ahead of a Friday evening press conference.

1. THIS IS AN EXPENSIVE LIVING AREA

This area of California is nice but it is EXPENSIVE. I always thought teachers should be paid with the best wages since they are the next generation instructors. They are much better and smarter people then the people running companies who are all over paid.
