. .At the beginning of the strike, Marshall, a teacher in the Oakland Unified School District for 22 years and a Democratic Socialist of America (DSA) activist, explained to Meagan Day — a DSA member and a Jacobin Magazine staff writer — why the young socialists who have recently begun teaching and joined the Oakland Education Association (OEA) were so critical to the launch of the strike:I think the additional wild card has been these young people. Funding from the bill will cover up to 75 percent of the Oakland’s shortfall next year, up to 50 percent the next year, and up to 25 percent in the third year.The energy from the young socialist teachers apparently inspired a number of their students to join the picket lines.“[R]oughly 25 students … joined teachers on the picket line in front of Oakland Tech Friday morning, on the second day of a districtwide teacher strike,” KQED reported.Blanc concluded in his Jacobin Magazine article that the success of the Oakland teachers strike was just the beginning.“[T]he next phase of the struggle also has to be part of a massive statewide movement — notably, to pass a statewide charter moratorium and to approve a 2020 ballot initiative to end Prop 13’s infamous commercial tax loopholes,” he wrote.
