Nation’s First Charter School Strike Ends

More than 7,000 students at 15 Acero charter schools are expected to be back in class Monday morning. The historic strike at the city’s second-largest charter network canceled classes for four days, leaving families scrambling and attracting national attention.

More than 500 teachers were on strike for four days, freezing instruction for Acero students and forcing parents to scramble to find child care. During the strike, union officials targeted political allies of Acero’s former parent company as the network filed an unfair labor practice complaint with the National Labor Relations Board in an effort to force teachers back into the classroom.
