Cleveland and teachers reach tentative agreement

Negotiators for the Cleveland Board of Education and the city's 5,000 teachers, on strike for 11 weeks, reached tentative agreement on a new contract Wednesday. Details were not released, pending ratification, and the contract is go to a vote Thursday.

Cleveland Teachers Union members last week rejected a two-year, $30 million contract offer and demanded about 4 percent more than the 10 percent wage increase offered by the school board.

Announcement of the tentative agreement resulted in confusion at many schools , because teachers had planned to resume picketing instead of obeying a court's back-to-work order.
