Strongsville family posts 'Student for Sale' sign hoping for teachers' strike to end

STRONGSVILLE, Ohio - The Strongsville teachers' strike wrapped up its fourth week on Friday with no end in sight. Talks between the Strongsville Education Association and the Strongsville City School District stalled during an 11-bargaining session on Tuesday.

Many Strongsville families are expressing their frustration. One family we found on Friday has a sign posted in the lawn: "Student for Sale."

They said they're looking for someone to teach their daughter because she's not getting the quality education she should.

"We're just fed up with the strike, we want our teachers back. The children want their teachers back, they want to be learning. It's gone on way too long," Lori Green said. "Come back to school and come back to work."

"It's just frustrating because this is kind of an important year for juniors. It's the one that colleges look at and with not learning anything, it's going to affect our grades," said Strongsville High School junior Nicole Green said.

The strike started on March 4 and has included everything from teacher arrests to chaos at the high school.
