Vote YES on G1!

Keep Teachers and School Educational Staff in OAKLAND!

Yes on G1

Oakland’s teachers are among the lowest paid in the Bay Area. We’re experiencing a severe teacher shortage in California. It’s more important than ever to be able to recruit and retain quality teachers, school educational staff, and provide middle school enrichment in Oakland schools!

Support Oakland Teachers & Students

YES on G1 pays Oakland teachers and school educational staff

Including classroom assistants, clerical and maintenance workers – more money so they can choose to live in Oakland, where they work.

YES on G1 expands learning opportunities for Oakland’s middle school students

By providing educational enrichment activities such as the music, art and world languages so important for a well-rounded education.

YES on G1 is fiscally accountable

By law, YES on G1 ensures all money benefits local Oakland teachers, staff and students – not a dime can be taken by Sacramento politicians. A 5-member Independent Citizens’ Oversight Commission reviews all spending. Seniors 65+ and low-income residents are exempt from Measure G1. Measure G1 expires in 12 years unless renewed by voters.

YES on G1 keeps great teachers and school educational staff in the Oakland community they love

Developing and training our next generation to become future leaders.

Your vote is needed more than ever to keep experienced, qualified teachers in Oakland. Like you, we’re invested in our City and champion a vision of supporting and mentoring our students and newer teachers.
