Tacoma teachers strike: Both sides say they’re still far apart in talks over pay raises
TACOMA, Wash. -- Tacoma Public Schools will not start as planned on Thursday. The Tacoma Education Association announced they were on strike after another day of bargaining with the school district led to no resolution Wednesday. Both sides say they are still far apart. “I’m a math teacher. I’m about to start my 14th year,” said Sara Ketelsen, a teacher at Lincoln High School in Tacoma.
