Organized parent power helps win our strike

Amid the sea of red shirts that flooded Los Angeles in early January, it may have been easy to miss those worn by the members of Eastside Padres Contra La Privatización. An all-volunteer organization formed in 2017 in response to a planned KIPP charter co-location at Marianna Avenue Elementary, Eastside Padres is a leading force in the community struggle to defend public education.

‘People don’t strike for 6%; we strike for justice’

We strike for just teaching and learning conditions. We strike for the schools our students deserve, and because we want to be able to meet the very diverse needs of our very diverse students. This is about the heart and soul of public education. That is why I will strike. 

Setting the record straight, charter co-location is harming our kids

The LA Times recently wrote an article about the contentious battle between LAUSD neighborhood schools and the corporate-sponsored charter schools that are attempting to co-locate onto our campuses.  The article left out many important details. As a teacher at Sunrise, I am here to set the record straight.

WORD ON THE STREET

We have been striking for a whole week. Our demands are simple: fund the schools our students deserve. Our strike is strong because our lines are strong. Our union is strong because our members are strong. Our movement is strong because our community is strong. #UTLAStrong <a...
