Philly students on strike for their teachers

The SRC ripped up their teachers' contracts Monday -- now students are striking outside their schools.


  1. After nearly two years of labor talks and a massive budget shortfall, the Philadelphia School Reform Commission dealt district teachers a blow Monday by canceling their contracts and saddling them with some of the costs of their own health care. The teachers would risk losing their licenses by striking, so the kids took matters into their own hands this morning.
  2. It was unclear as of early Wednesday morning just how many schools were involved in the student-led strike, but many began mobilizing using social media and the hashtag #studentsforteachers.
