Kids will stay out of school while the strike continues.
Some parents say they’re already fed up and are planning to enroll their children in a different school district next year, while some say neither is putting the students’ best interest first.
“I want to see a long-term solution cut now so I’m not doing this two or three years throughout my child’s education,” said parent Kelley Stout.READ MORE: Levee Safety A Focus In Aftermath Of Sacramento River Boat Fire near I-80 Bridge
Other parents say they’re in support of the strike.
The teachers union and school district have been negotiating over take home pay, teacher shortages, and COVID-19 protocols, but have not been able to reach a deal.
“Given that SCTA and SEIU are moving forward with a strike, we remain very concerned about our students, their families, and our entire community,” said Christina Pritchett, President of the SCUSD Board of Education, in a statement.MORE NEWS: Sacramento Man Arrested On Suspicion Of Lewd Acts With Children
