Thousands Of Teachers In Washington State Strike Over Salaries

Nearly 80,000 students in the US state of Washington were unable to attend the first day of school this week as thousands of teachers went on strike seeking higher salaries, teachers' unions said.
Educators in seven school districts in southwestern Washington were on strike as early as mid-August and the number of walkouts was expected to rise, according to the Washington Education Association, which represents teachers in the state.
Teachers seeking enhanced education funding also have walked out in recent months in West Virginia, Arizona and Oklahoma.
More Washington educators would walk out next week. Teachers in Seattle - the state’s most-populated city - on Tuesday gave their union authority to call for a strike unless a contract deal is reached before classes resume there on September 5, according to the Seattle Education Association.
Seattle Public Schools officials said the district backs educators and believes it has provided them with fair and competitive salaries, but it said on Wednesday that it must also manage its budget to provide services for students.
“We must balance our desire to support our educators while at the same time sustaining critical services and programs students need and families expect,” Seattle school officials said in a statement.
