Public school teachers were expected to end their strike and return to their classrooms today, where they will continue the limited job action they began in September and consider future protests against a government bill now working its way through the legislature.
Although they are legally permitted to strike one day a week until Bill 22 is proclaimed, teachers and students in many districts are heading toward a two-week spring break that starts after classes Friday. The union wouldn’t comment Wednesday on what it plans to do next, but said teachers would only work from bell-to-bell this week.
