With the teachers strike in Oakland Unified ending its first week, we interview a parent and an overworked school nurse for their take on why the district’s 3,000 teachers walked off the job, and speak with EdSource reporter Theresa Harrington about prospects for a settlement.
We also review a bill quickly moving through the Legislature that would require charter schools to follow the same public disclosure and conflict of interest laws that apply to school districts. And Louis interviews Roberta Furger, co-author of a new report by the Learning Policy Institute on the state of education reforms in California.
