Re: “Oakland Teachers Union Still Doesn’t Get It

I agree with the last few comments. Mr. Gammon does a poor job of investigating both sides of the story. Oakland police are making great salaries and getting approved overtime during this time of financial hardship. Why can't the teachers who educate our children get a 15% raise, especially if its been eight years. The average Oakland cop is getting 80k to 100k plus with overtime. Not to mention, that stupid defunct measure ("Y" did the money get spent on BS). I am not saying they don't deserve good pay, but clearly it does say that making sure we can keep good teachers in the public school system is not as priority. Thats just one example. Don't let me even get to the fireman and so on. This city's mismanagement of the budget is ridiculous, one of their solutions was to increase fines and give out more parking tickets. Idiots! Lets get some real ideas, and a real focus. Education is important, pay the teachers they deserve it. Frankly, I hope the city is able to fix this. As a concerned Oakland parent, I guess I could do what most of our city officials do, and send my kids to private school. (Sarcasm intended)
