SEATTLE — Teachers, administrators and parent volunteers welcomed children back to school in Seattle, on Wednesday, following a weeklong educators strike that delayed the start of classes.

Seattle Public Schools and the Seattle Education Association announced, Monday night, that they had reached a tentative agreement on a new contract, and the union’s membership voted, Tuesday, to suspend the walkout pending ratification of the contract.

Didn't they just get pay increases....Teachers (Public Schools) have become Lazy Parasites...nothing more. You would be Wise to Enroll your Child in a Private School, or Homeschool them Yourself...Unless you want them to be a worthless POS Liberal Activist...Living in your Basement...Forever....plus your kids don't need school to be waiters.
