Backed by the Washington Teachers’ Union, teachers from Thomson Elementary School marched on Monday to demand that DCPS and Chancellor Kaya Henderson resume contract negotiations with their union. The schools’ teachers, like other DCPS teachers across the city, say they want a new collective bargaining agreement that respects the work that they do and includes compensation that is fair. On May 6, close to 100 teachers from Murch Elementary School, Deal Middle School and Wilson High School held a similar march and rally. Other marches and rallies are planned throughout the city. photo from WYU 6 Twitter feed
