Union and Board to Meet Thursday Afternoon

Both sides agree to meet on Day 2 of the Lake Forest High School Strike

The Teacher's Union and School Board will be meeting today at the West Campus at 2 p.m. to continue

"The Board is pleased that the Union has agreed to meet with us," said School Board President Sharon Golan.

"After waiting for more than 39 hours to hear the Board's response to our last offer, the LFEA looks foward to substantial negotiations at 2 p.m. today. We will continue to work toward a Fair and Equitable Contract Agreement," said Tom Gigiano, lead negotiator of the Lake Forest Education Association, via a statement on the Lake Forest Teacher website. 

The strike began on Sept. 12 after the Union and the Board concerning the teacher's contracts.

My Amen is to the appeal of the LF Parent NOT to any of the negativity ignoring what is best for the students.

At what point can the Board fire tge striking teachers and reopen the school? Surely as Educators the whole point is to Educate. What an appalling example the teachers are setting, and these are the people we are paying to set a good example. Their message seems to be "Screw the kids, We Want More"

If the LFHS teachers are so concerned about respect, how do they think their unrealistic demands look to their students who see City of Chicago teachers who have 41 kids in a classroom. not enough books and teach in classrooms without air conditioning? Teachers, your students are watching you set a bad example. You are teaching them while you are striking too. Parents, while the teachers strike, be sure your kids read the newspaper and learn what is going on in this state with the teachers' unions.
