The LAUSD teacher strikes continues today.

Ten of thousands of teachers are walking off the job to fight for higher pay and smaller class sizes, among other things. Despite work stoppage, schools in the district were open, staffed by some 400 substitute teachers and volunteers.

AirTalk checks in on Day 2 of the strike with KPCC education reporter Kyle Stokes, and we talk to LAUSD parents about the situation.
