Teacher strikes

"Teachers struck in Minneapolis, Minn., Muskogee, Okla. , and Butte, Mont., as Los Angeles teachers voted over- whelmingly to quit their classrooms This quotation is the first sentence of an article in the April 20, 1970, U, S. News and World Report entitled "Teacher Issues: Pay, Power, Class Size." The present study will attempt to review the issues presented in the Los Angeles teacher strike: teacher unity, teacher attitudes and the relationship between legal and political environments. Whether the strike is a one day affair in Paris France, as a protest to lower class size, or a three month marathon in Newark, New Jersey, over teacher supervision of meals and playgrounds, in a race confrontation situation, the teacher strike continues to be a factor of growing importance in the future of education.
