Pulaski school woes

Posted By on Fri, Dec 11, 2009 at 7:19 AM

The support staff union at the Pulaski County School District decided last night not to strike today. But I wonder if talk of the possibility earlier will depress attendance today. It's Friday, after all.

The support staff and teachers' unions lost their status as bargaining agents on a heated Board vote Tuesday night. Teachers had a one-day strike yesterday.

All is supposed to be normal today, except for bruised feelings and ongoing discussions about the next steps. Any reports to the contrary?
