VIDEO: Parkrose School District Votes Against PFA Contract 4/17/12

StreetNews Report: Early on the morning of 4/17, a board meeting was held at 8:45am at the Parkrose District Office concerning teacher union negotiations between the school board and the Parkrose Faculty Association (PFA). The reentered contract was given a unanimous "No" vote and the board asked for a ten day extension under overwhelming opposition. With much media coverage and a large attendance of the public, outrage ensued. A strike is "inevitable" according to organizers.
