Los Angeles Teachers Strike,

Wall Street Journal

In January, 2019 Los Angeles teachers went on a week-long strike in Los Angeles Unified School District (LAUSD), the nation’s second-largest school system protesting the district on issues of staffing, class size and pay. The strike was the nation’s largest teacher strike in decades and resulted in a final agreement with the district including a 6% raise, a gradual decrease in class sizes over the next few years as well as more counselors, librarians and nurses.
