Earlier this morning, Mayor Eric Garcetti, alongside UTLA President Alex Caputo Pearl and LAUSD Superintendent Austin Beutner, announced a tentative agreement to end the teachers’ strike.

The deal includes lower class sizes, community-based schools, improved support staff and a salary increase for teachers.

Teachers will return to work and normal classes will resume tomorrow, should the 34,000 members of the teachers union vote to approve the deal later today.
