Naperville Teachers Vote to Authorize Strike

Incredible: the District 203 teachers voted 92% tonight in favor of authorizing a strike if a contract agreement isn’t reached by Wednesday. We live in 204, so we won’t have to contemplate explaining to Ricky why he can’t start kindergarten on Thursday.

The School District’s reaction is here, while the teachers’ union explains its side here. (One bone of contention? The school district apparently breached a mutually agreed-upon media black-out, choosing to go public with its offer.)

Wednesday is supposed to be the first day of school… looks like it’ll come down to the wire.
