Teachers in Nation’s Second Largest School District on Strike

Los Angeles

Thousands of teachers in the nation’s second largest school district walked out of their classroom in the Los Angeles Unified School District on Monday becoming the latest teachers’ union across the country to say, “Enough!” The walk out marked the first time in thirty years the United Teachers Los Angeles (UTLA) has gone on strike. The strike originally scheduled to begin late last week, was postponed until Monday out of an abundance of hope a last-minute deal could be reached—that did not happen. Although 32,000 Los Angeles teachers and staff members have been on the picket line, schools remain open and the district’s 600,000 students are being attended by substitute teachers. The teachers are striking for wages, a reduction in class sizes and greater investments in staff, school nurses, special education teachers and additional counselors.
