More on West Virginia Teacher Strike

Kris Maier has more details on the West Virginia teacher strike in the Wall Street Journal.

Public-school teachers in West Virginia went on strike Thursday, shutting schools across the state, as unions rejected pay and benefits proposals by state lawmakers.

The walkouts affected some 270,000 students, according to the latest enrollment figures from the state Education Department. The department had announced school closures for all 55 counties in the state Wednesday night.
