CHARLESTON, W.Va. — A work stoppage that has kept West Virginia public school teachers out of classrooms for over a week will continue on Monday, according to a statement from the three education organizations.
“Senator Mitch Carmichael (the Republican Senate President from Jackson County) and the Senate leadership team leave us no choice — all public schools in West Virginia will be closed again on Monday and remain closed until the Senate honors the agreement that was made,” leaders from the West Virginia Education Association, the American Federation of Teachers-West Virginia and the West Virginia School Service Personnel Association said in a joint statement.
“We call for all education employees and supporters to be at the capitol on Monday to deliver a clear message to Senator Carmichael and his leadership team.”
