Another California Strike Threat

Another California school district is enduring a strike called by teacher union officials. Sean P. Thomas has the story in the Calaveras Enterprise.

The Calaveras Unified Educators’ Association announced that 138 teachers in the Calaveras Unified School District have agreed to strike starting Oct. 19, due to unresolved disputes concerning class sizes, school safety issues and salary.

Teachers will begin removing personal items from classrooms on Tuesday, Oct. 17 in preparation for Thursday’s strike. According to a press release from CUSD, campuses will remain open, but all extra-curricular activities, including sports, will be cancelled due to a potential lack of staff.
