Could Board Hire Replacement Teachers?

Posted by wlpo on October 7, 2009

Other schools have done it; even Major League Baseball did it, hiring replacement teachers or workers during a strike.

While the Ottawa High School Board has made no mention of hiring temporary, replacement teachers so that classes start again, it is a possibility. 

Regional Superintendent of Schools Rich Myers says he’s seen eight teacher strikes in La Salle County and none have ended up with replacement teachers.  If that happens with Ottawa High, Myers says his office and the state will be involved in picking replacements, making sure they are qualified.
