L.A. teach­ers strike ex­pected:

The Washington Post - - POLITICS & THE NATION -

A mas­sive teach­ers strike in Los An­ge­les is all but in­evitable start­ing Mon­day after the two sides did not re­new ne­go­ti­a­tions over the week­end. The teach­ers union re­jected a new of­fer Fri­day from L.A. Uni­fied School Dis­trict after hours of talks. United Teach­ers Los An­ge­les called the dis­trict pro­posal “woe­fully in­ad­e­quate.” With no new talks sched­uled, pick­ets are likely to be­gin at 7 a.m. as teach­ers push for a raise and smaller classes. Schools will re­main open. The dis­trict has hired sub­sti­tutes to re­place staff mem­bers who leave schools for picket lines.
