Join the action listserv here.

Newsletter #5: December 23, 2018

Introduction:

This week, UTLA announced they will strike on 1/10/19 if their demands are not met by LAUSD prior. In response, California unions are planning a day of action on 1/11/19, including walk-ins, to bring public awareness to the issues facing public education in Los Angeles and statewide, and to build towards organizing for future, coordinated statewide actions.


Oakland Unified School District is threatening to close up to 24 schools, and OEA and the community is fighting back. There is a school board meeting mobilization planned for 1/9/19 and it’s important to bring together large numbers together to stand up and speak out.


In addition, a huge rally is happening on 1/12/19 in downtown Oakland, the first event organized by the East Bay Coalition for Public Education, consisting of many local education unions, as well as board members and community allies; and one of the first in California to call for changes in funding at the state level.


California Educators Rising is excited to launch a site-based action listserv for connecting educator union organizers statewide to share resources, ideas, and plans. We envision building a network of school worker organizers in every county, district, and site throughout the state, as well as joining with parents, families, and community groups and individuals, to coordinate our actions of increasing intensity and size, in order to meet the demands of a fully and progressively funded public education system in California. Join the site-based action listserv here.

Weekly Review


  • Los Angeles
    • UTLA/LAUSD Fact Finding Report: The neutral fact-finder confirms three essential UTLA positions: That LAUSD has $1.8 billion in reserves, that LAUSD should increase staffing of nurses, counselors, and other professional staff and that LAUSD should eliminate section 1.5 of contract (which unilaterally allows the District to increase class size). After 20 months of fruitless bargaining and lies and manipulation on the part of LAUSD Supt. Austin Beutner, United Teachers Los Angeles today announced a strike date of Thursday, January 10.
    • UTLA calls for an immediate cap on charter school growth in LAUSD. Their schools are being destabilized by the “grow at any cost” business model pushed by the CCSA, the corporate charter industry, and their allies on the school board.


  • Oakland
    • OUSD plans to close schools: The OUSD school board plans on voting to close schools in January and February. Although the official list is going to be released until February we have learned about 2 of the first closures that will be happening. ROOTS will be closing at the end of this school year and CCPA will “expand” onto both campuses. Manzanita Community will close at the end of 2019-20 and the students will be sent to Fruitvale. Then SOL middle school will be moved onto the campus and Manzanita SEED will basically be a K-8.
    • On Wednesday night, 12/19, The OEA Executive Board passed a motion to give their President the power to call a strike authorization vote. This is the 1st step in authorizing a strike according to OEA bylaws.

  • Teachers Against Child Detention - Teachers Against Child Detention (TACD) was formed by a group of teachers led by Mandy Manning, the 2018 National Teacher of the Year. Teachers are mandatory reporters, required under U.S. law to report suspected child abuse to responsible authorities. TACD calls on all educators to act as mandatory reporters and speak out against the atrocities being perpetrated against the children in detention at Tornillo. TACD is an alliance between teachers, immigrant rights organizations and other citizens concerned about the welfare of children at Tornillo. TACD demands that its teachers be given access to the children at Tornillo, to offer them classroom instruction, and to deliver them a message of hope and love. TACD also demands that these children be released from incarceration. They are being punished not out of a sense of what is just and right, but to promote a political agenda that ignores their rights and potential as human beings.



  • Black Lives Matter at School - Black Lives Matter At School is a national coalition of educators organizing for racial justice in education. We encourage all educators, students, parents, unions, and community organizations to join our annual week of action during the first week of February each year.

Midweek Update:

UTLA ANNOUNCES STRIKE DATE IF NO AGREEMENT REACHED

https://www.latimes.com/local/education/la-me-edu-los-angeles-teachers-strike-20181219-story.html?fbclid=IwAR3wyKer-tDoW9qojlnC-3b0_MXfR2y5OKJEn-FO_UfwntA2SY0FyICHeps

The union representing Los Angeles teachers announced Wednesday that it will strike on Jan. 10 if a settlement is not reached by then.


Union leaders made their announcement Wednesday morning at their Koreatown headquarters, defining the dispute as a battle for the future of education in the nation’s second-largest school system.

How can you support?

Join the Day of Action on January 11th

https://www.facebook.com/events/345223062875373

UTLA’s fight is for all of us, just as OEA’s fight is as well. The demand for class size limits, more counselors and student supports, a fair wage, and democratically-run community schools will lift the bar across the state -- and our fight together for reforming Prop 13 to close corporate tax loopholes and fund our schools will strengthen each local’s bargaining power.

Shoutout to Berkeley Federation of Teachers and United Teachers of Richmond for organizing walk-ins on 1/11/19. United Educators of San Francisco has also called for a day of action and for members to wear red.

No Cuts No Closures -

The school board plans on voting to close schools in January and February. Although the official list is not going to be released until February we have learned about 2 of the first closures that will be happening.

1. ROOTS will be closing at the end of this school year and CCPA will “expand” onto both campuses.

2. Manzanita Community will close at the end of 2019-20 and the students will be sent to Fruitvale. Then SOL middle school will be moved onto the campus and Manzanita SEED will basically be a K-8.

Principals have been informed if their school is on the list so people should ask them directly. If anyone has any information to please feel free to send it privately it you need to remain anonymous.

This is far from over since the school board has yet to vote. We can stop them. The only way they can close our schools is if we let them. Please come to The January 9th school board meeting and join us in saying No Cuts No Closures.

Newsletter #4, December 17, 2018

Thank you to everyone who turned out this weekend for Public Education! We are so happy to hear that thousands gathered in Los Angeles, and we’re eager to share that over 250 joined us in Oakland for a Mass Solidarity Meeting to support UTLA, OEA and Public Education for all in CA. We had facilitators from Alameda Education Association, Berkeley Federation of Teachers, Oakland Education Association, United Educators of San Francisco, and community allies.


In Oakland, educators from over 15 different locals, and community allies from other unions, political groups, and individuals participated. We heard from Deirdre Snyder, Treasurer of OEA and member of Classroom Struggle, and a dozen other expressions of solidarity for UTLA and OEA from the floor (including unions like United Teachers of Richmond, Dublin Teachers Association, Teamsters, Alcosta Service Center, Peralta Federation of Teachers, UAW 5810, UAW 2865, Oak Grove Educators Association, United Educators of San Francisco, Berkeley Federation of Teachers, and more!). After a huge solidarity photo and chants for the UTLA march, we split into these 7 breakout sessions:

  1. Building Site-Based Solidarity Actions (#RedForEd days! Walk-ins!)
  2. Strike Schools Support
  3. Picket Line Support
  4. Art Making and Photobooth
  5. Community Engagement
  6. Story Shares
  7. and Oakland educators connecting about their next steps.


The labor movement is now coming together for public schools in California, and educators are rising up across California. We will see the Bay Area on the streets on January 12, 2019 in Downtown Oakland; and meanwhile, #RedForEd actions continue to build knowledge, support, and mobilization at school sites across the state.

1 #RedForEd:

School sites are continuing to wear #RedForEd and share information about UTLA/OEA and the statewide fight for public education in California. Use the five minutes when taking a picture together to share information and encourage participating members to bring more members to the picture next time, and spread the word about December 15th. Connect UTLA/OEA’s demands to local issues in your district.


For example, …

At this week's #RedForEd day at your site, talk about school closures, privatization, and the connection to racial justice. From Los Angeles to Oakland, from Duarte to West Sacramento, from San Diego to Ross Valley - the threat of school closures and charterization are impacting all of our districts. Share what's happening in your district when you post your pictures.

Check out this great statement of solidarity from Oak Grove Educators Association

Facebook event

Join us! Wear #RedForEd and post online using hashtags and slogans such as

#CA1050Strong wears #RedForEd for OEA and UTLA! #UTLAStrong #Unite4OaklandKids

#yourlocalhashtag or @yourlocal wears #RedforEd for public education!

...because class size matters

...because California is the wealthiest state but one of lowest in per pupil funding

...add your own!

Share in the group, the page, on twitter, instagram, and you can email caeducatorsrising@gmail.com to get posted on all our accounts! Tag @UTLAnow and you might show up in their next newsletter [happened last time!]

This week we want to shout out new participants from Kern High School Teachers’ Association in Bakersfield!

Frequent questions/concerns:

• Why do we wear red? “Red is an expression of solidarity” ; NEA’s call to wear Red for Ed

• School doesn't allow red? Encourage your members to wear union t shirts and hold signs supporting UTLA/OEA with a message about what they want to see in their schools.

We all wear union/red shirts on a different day - does it have to be Tuesday? Pictures of solidarity from all days of the week are great! If your local does different days, take big pictures then - you can always take an individual photo of solidarity on Tuesday to join with others statewide and help the hashtag #CA1050Strong take off


2. Site-based meetings about UTLA/OEA and statewide demands!

See this toolkit for all the materials!

This week we want to shoutout Oak Grove Education Association for sharing information with their members about UTLA/OEA: https://www.facebook.com/CAEducatorsRising/photos/a.2366321326765892/2400229336708424/?type=3&theater

4. Walk-ins:

Keep your ear out for a statewide walk-in to support UTLA in January. More info coming soon.


WHAT is a Walk-in? Teachers gather 30-40 minutes before work, often wearing union t-shirts or colors (REDforED in this case). They meet with parents, school employees, and education activists; take pictures; talk to media and elected officials, and then all walk-in to school in unison.


WHO is Expected to Participate?

Any California school district employee, or community ally, is encouraged to take part in the statewide walk-ins. The walk-ins are part of resolutions endorsed by the California Teachers Association (CTA) and many local educators unions, including Oakland Education Association (OEA), San Diego Education Association, San Jose Teachers Association, United Educators of San Francisco, and Berkeley Federation of Teachers, and United Teachers of Richmond.


See this toolkit for information you can use to share information and get your site ready.
