Oakland teachers are asking for a 12-percent raise over three years, more nurses and counselors and smaller class sizes.

The Oakland Unified School District has said they would commit to reducing class sizes by 1-percent and offered an 8.5-percent raise over a four-year period.

Parents of students affected by the strike have been dealing with daycare issues in different ways, including taking students into their own homes and watching them while their parents are at work.
