Dear Yamilex, I think your post was interesting because the fact that you wrote, ” Some people feel they are part of Oakland culture and good, while others feel they are dangerous and bad. ” is showing me that there are two opinions on Oaklands Culture. The reason I think that your post is interesting is, “Sideshows are both good and bad, but they…[Read more]
I feel good about your post “Oakland Education Crisis”. One sentence that stood out to me was,”Oakland Education has taken a big turn and is one of the lowest and poorest education in California because of funding issues.” This stood out to me because it shows how Oakland Education has taken a big turn and that is a thing to…[Read more]
I agree with your clam, Based on research, Teachers in Oakland felt under appreciated because of how awful OUSD is treating them, but since the strike, they hope that the conditions can improve.

Do you think that construction teams that are in unions are treated the same as construction teams in non-unions? What is a Union? “Labor unions exist for a wide variety of professions, representing ev
Dear Dominik, I think this topic is very interesting and unique. A part in your blog that really stood out me was “Construction is a sector that has historically excluded black workers” the reason that part stood out to me was because it was something that I didn’t know and I found very negative. I agree with you when you stated “all construction teams should be in unions so they can all be treated equally.” the reason I agree with that statement is because I think it is really bad if construction
workers who build stuff for people don’t get treated equally, then the construction workers will resign their jobs.
Thank you Dominik for taking your time in writing this blog.
Hello my name is Nicole and I am a child development student at San Jose State University. Overall I thought you did an amazing job on your post. I can tell you put a lot of time and effort into your work. I especially liked this part “ By analyzing the research and conducting interviews, it is clear that non-union construction teams aren’t equal and not everyone feels safe therefore all construction teams should be in unions so they can all be treated equally.” I completely agree with what you are explaining and I think that it is great that you are bringing light to this topic. Overall amazing job. Thank you.
I am Enlightened by your photograph because its cool how you used photos in your shadow box which was a good thing to do. Another thing you used was a case of airpods which shows you like to listen to music. Your Mexican flag will show your with you being Mexican.
Did you know that my chosen Identities are being male and that is true because I identify as a Male. An assigned Identity of mine is being Mexican because of my family. When I was smaller I never knew what being
This is a youth-powered publishing platform that was started in 2003 by a group of teachers from local sites of the National Writing Project.
We merged several earlier blogging projects. We have found that there are many advantages to bringing students together in one site that lives beyond any particular class. It’s easier for individual students to read and write about their own passions, to connect with other students, comment on each other’s work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further, it’s been exciting for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum, connected learning, and digital literacies.
There are over 8,000 posts and over 13,000 comments by young people on the site on topics as diverse as the American Dream, Shakespeare, and sports as well as original poems and stories.
Youth Voices is a platform for youth to write about their interests, both in school and outside of school: what they are reading, what their hobbies or future careers might be, what they enjoy in their spare time. Like all of us, students follow our national leadership and form opinions. They are also welcome to write about those topics as well.
Youth Voices is fully non-partisan and welcomes youth of all types, from all regions, and with all viewpoints. Educators support youth in writing and thoughtfully responding to each other through the use of commenting guides, using tags to show common interests, playlists to support self-guided inquiry; opinions expressed by writers are their own.
If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us. We welcome all youth and any teacher interested in having students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.
