Oakland, CA—TODAY, at 4:15 am, Police is raiding camp of Lakeview Sit-In. A rally will be hold today Tuesday July 03 at 5 PM at Lakeview Elementary School.
During the last two weeks, parents, teachers and community members have set up a week long summer school program called “The People’s School for Public Education.” During it, students learned about social justice, arts, and gardening. The People’s School for Public Education aims to bring further community awareness to closure of 5 elementary schools, including Lakeview Elementary. In addition, the People’s Schools shows that when OUSD will not provide students with essential resources, parents, teachers and community members will. The People’s School, as well as the Sit-In has gained the support of key labor leaders, including Betty Olson-Jones, president of the OEA.
The Lakeview Sit-In demands a stop to all school closure, or the resignation of Tony Smith, superintendent of the OUSD. The Sit-In at Lakeview is held in solidarity with all parents and teachers struggling to demand quality public education across the country.
