Teachers Will Teach

The Rockford Public Schools seems to have averted yet another teacher strike this year. The deal still has to get approved by the various sides, but at least there's an agreement. I must admit I'm a little bit surprised. I'm guessing that the District Superintendent wasn't as tough as he talked. He hadn't done a whole lot to make friends with the teachers' union, so there was a bit of distrust going in to the negotiations. A mediator, however, seems to have done what they were supposed to do, a good thing.
