Day 49

The judge has ruled that we need to go back to work, with classes beginning Wednesday. She has yet to say anything about what will happen if we don't.

The union president expects us to vote to stay on strike, but she may be surprised if the e-mails I'm getting are any indication. I think most teachers would be happy to go back if both sides were willing to accept binding arbitration. It's becoming clear that this strike is doing no good at all. The district just isn't paying any attention, and there really needs to be an outside force taking charge.

We meet at 6:30 tonight to get the full story, debate, and finally vote. Of course I'll let you know what happens as soon as I can.
