Denver strike ends with teacher raises of up to 11 percent

DENVER (AP) — Denver school administrators and the city’s striking teachers reached a tentative deal Thursday to end a three-day educator walkout with a contract agreement that gives teachers raises of 7 to 11 percent, built-in cost-of-living increases and opportunities for future salary hikes.

The key sticking point of variable bonuses for teachers working in tougher environments will be studied to determine if they help retain teachers in schools, the teachers’ union said.

Solidarity works. It's that simple.

West Virginia's educators just won their strike! A few minutes ago, they forced the House to kill the Republicans' pro-privatization bill, 53-45. Strikes work — check out this video of the celebration.

Quote:
Teachers walked off the job Tuesday in opposition to Senate Bill 451 which would have created seven charter schools in West Virginia and would allow 1000 students to use educational savings accounts.
