20170926-VT Legislators Call for Teacher Strike Ban

The latest strike in the Burlington School district last week was the last straw for some Vermont legislators. Peter Hirshfield has the story on Vermontnpr.net.

The Burlington teacher strike is over, but it’s reignited a political debate that will run well into the next legislative session.

Two prominent lawmakers will soon introduce legislation that would prohibit public school teachers from going on strike. Earlier this week, with the city-wide teacher strike in its third day, Burlington Rep. Kurt Wright held a late morning press conference at City Hall to announce the plan.
