Dear Oakland Athletes,
Imagine all the passion you have for a sport and that being shattered in a matter of seconds due to you having an accident that prevents you from playing. Have you wondered how that
Efraim commented on the post, Teachers and Rent in Oakland
Dear Cesar I think that you post was really intresting to me because it talks about how that teachers are getting low pay. A line that stood out to me is that “On top of having trouble with payment, because of payment, teachers are getting second jobs to get paid better.” I can agree with you because with your point about that teachers have a…Read More

Dear Douglas Ramos,
I feel a litte counfused about your post because that Oaklands rent hasnt doubled priced. “The rent in Oakland has doubled in price in the past 10 years!” This sentence stood up to me because prices didnt doubled because for that reason. The real reason they doubled because people in San francisco couldnt afford to pay for the…Read More
“More than 3,000 public school educators from the Oakland Education Association went on strike to demand better pay, school funding and overall to improved classrooms conditions—meaning less-crowded” (Garr3 Comments
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 worry about. However, one thing I disagree with is,”Oakland Education has taken a big turn and is one of the lowest and poorest education in California because of funding issues.” I disagree with this sentence because not all places are treated equally. A quote showing this is, Greenwich spends $6,000 more per pupil per year than Bridgeport does, according to the State Department of Education.” This quote is proving that Greenwich spends $6,000 more per pupil per year than Bridgeport does. Which shows not every school is treated easily.
I am a student at San Jose State University and I loved reading your blog post! I think it has a lot of significance especially because education plays such a large role in our lives as students. When you talked about “the increase in class sizes and not enough staff,” I could not relate more: I went to a large, public high school in San Francisco, and we had almost 3,000 students with the student to teacher ratio almost 30 students per teacher. Thank you for sharing your perspective and experiences from Oakland; I truly enjoyed it.

Oakland Education Crisis
- December 19, 2019
Dear Efraim, I agree with your post, “Oakland Education Crisis” because teachers in Oakland should get payed more for the job they do. One line that stood out to me was, “The increase in class sizes and not enough staff makes it difficult for students to get the right education.” I agree with this statement because if there is more students in one class than the students are less likely to get 1 on 1 attention that they need. Your essay reminds me of when the teachers had the strike in march for better pay and smaller classroom sizes. Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I really enjoyed reading ur writing. I like looking at other people point of views and comparing them to mine. Hope to read your work in the future!
