No More Teacher Striking in Seattle

Sep 21, 2015

COMMON GROUND: Late Sunday night, Seattle's teachers accepted and ratified a new labor contract that will officially bring Seattle Public School's 12-day strike to an end. The contract provides teachers in the 53,000-student district with a 9.5 percent pay increase over three years, not including cost-of-living adjustments. The contract also addresses teacher complaints about the role of testing in schools, offering teachers more input over standardized tests and its relationship to teacher evaluations.
