BRECKSVILLE, Ohio - Teachers wearing red shirts overwhelmed the Brecksville-Broadview Heights Board of Education meeting Monday night.
Hundreds of teachers, unhappy with contract negotiations, tried to pack into the board room with a capacity for only 50. They came to show solidarity for their union and to hear the board's financial report.
The board was reluctant to move or postpone the meeting, so the fire marshal was called to clear out the standing room only crowd.
After a quick private discussion, the board decided to move the meeting to the high school auditorium. Teachers clapped and cheered the decision.
