Teachers in Los Angeles Return to Classes after Historic Agreement

After six days on strike, tens of thousands of teachers in Los Angeles have returned to the classroom. The settlement between the teachers’ union and school authorities includes higher salaries, smaller class sizes, and more support staff. Negotiations are also set to continue on further reductions in class sizes and controversial charter schools. Both parties agreed that there is much more to do on financing schools and improving low academic performance in the country’s second-largest school district.
