Negotiations between Los Angeles Unified School District and United Teachers Los Angeles, the union representing 33,000 teachers, continue to unfold.

UTLA announced a news conference at 10:00a.m. Wednesday morning. Details of the conference remain unclear and the dispute is still up in the air.

The conference comes after the release of a fact-finding report yesterday and a teacher rally in downtown Los Angeles Saturday morning. The district, which has more than 640,000 K-12 students, hasn’t seen a formal strike by teachers in almost 30 years.

If you’re a LAUSD parent, what are your thoughts on the ongoing conflict? Do you support or oppose teachers going on strike? Call us at 866-893-5722.
