No More Teacher Striking in Seattle

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. More from NBC here.
