The Los Angeles teachers reached a tentative agreement with the school district to end their weeklong strike. “The agreement is a paradigm shift for the city and nation, as it makes a clear commitment to the resources and conditions necessary for teachers to teach and kids to learn in L.A.’s public schools,” says AFT President Randi Weingarten. “This strike and the community support of the teacher strikers flipped the debate over public education in L.A. on its head. And the result is nothing short of a sea change for public schools and for educators in L.A. and in the country.” The win includes caps in class sizes, nurses in every school, concessions on testing, a cap on charter schools and more.
