Los Angeles teachers returned to schools on Wednesday after negotiators for United Teachers Los Angeles and the Los Angeles Unified School District reached a tentative agreement on a new contract.

UTLA members voted on the contract and as of now, over 80 percent of the votes have been counted with overwhelming support for the new contract.

But a decisive tally of votes doesn't mean teachers think the new deal terms are a perfect fix. We talked to a handful of teachers from across the district to hear what they think of the new contract.
