Updated: Oakland Teachers’ Union Talks Unravel

The Oakland teachers’ union abruptly ended contract talks with district officials yesterday and said it would not continue bargaining, according to district spokesman Troy Flint. Oakland schools Superintendent Tony Smith said in a statement that he was “disappointed” in the teachers’ union decision. He noted that under the latest budget proposal from Governor Schwarzenegger, Oakland schools will have to cut $100 million from its unrestricted budget next year — following $40 million in cuts in the past two years.
