IT'S EDSBS CHARTIBUNDI BOWL WEEK

Oakland teacher's strike finally over. Thank God!
I'm sure they will spin it otherwise, but IMO this was a disaster for the union. Big pay raises were already on the table before the strike began, and on the various other "common good" items that their leaders claimed they were continuing the strike for, all they got was some MOUs that are (1) non-binding and (2) lay out stuff that the district was mostly already doing anyway. And for that, kids lost 8 days of school while the union got pilloried in the press and alienated families. If I were in that union I'd want new leadership.
IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: The warning that I received, you may take with however many grains of salt you wish, that the brown acid that is circulating around us, is specifically not too good. It's suggested that you do stay away from that; of course, it's your own trip, so, be my guest. But, please be advised that there is a warning on that one.
