from Politico Morning Ed for 21 Sept 2015

The entire membership of the Seattle Education Association approved a new contract on Sunday, cementing an end to a strike that delayed the start of school for about a week. The teachers union's executive board and representative assembly approved [ ] the agreement with Seattle Public Schools earlier this week, allowing school to start last Thursday.

Included in the agreement:

  • New policies to reduce over-testing, 
  • base salary increases for teachers and
  • additional staff to reduce teacher workloads.
  • Student test scores will also no longer be tied to teacher evaluations.
