Five schools on strike

Negotiations have failed in Rutland Southwest Supervisory Union between teachers and school board members. Monday marked the fourth day of a strike leaving five schools in Wells, Ira, Tinmouth, Poultney and Middletown Springs closed since last Wednesday. The 650 students and 65 teachers will have to make up these days missed before the school year ends.

The conflict sparked over teacher contracts and working conditions, including time management and teaching autonomy.
