The staff at Bridges Academy at Melrose sent a bilingual flier home to families, inviting them to join them in Wednesday’s general strike in support of Occupy Oakland — and informing them that teachers would not be in their classrooms that day.
They’re meeting at the East Oakland elementary school in the morning and traveling to Oakland City Hall together, by BART.
“We, the teachers at Bridges, are joining the Occupy Oakland protest on Wednesday, November 2. We will not be in our classrooms that day, all day,” the flier says. “We are the 99%!!”
Are the teachers at your school thinking about joining the strike?
