Deal Reached To End West Virginia Teacher Strike That Threatened The Progress Of All Three State Honors Students
Charleston, WV -- Disaster was narrowly averted this morning, as West Virginia teachers struck a deal with lawmakers to end the week-long strike and get back into the classrooms where all three of the state’s honors students are waiting for instruction.
The three students, Donald Asmir, Kathleen Ulomo and Harriet Blautman have been eager to continue their educational journey, despite the fact they live in West Virginia. Each is currently enrolled in one of three different school districts, meaning they get special one-on-one teacher instruction in all of their honors classes.
“It’s great,” said a shy Ulomo as she prepared her paperwork for the start of the school day. “Maybe they should lower the state standards for reaching the cutoff to make honors, but until then I’ll be greedy and enjoy the fantastic attention I get from all of my educators.”
