Oakland teachers gain pay concessions, end strike

Teachers in Oakland, Calif., overwhelmingly approved a new contract giving them a 14 percent raise over two years, ending their four-day strike. About 100 schools reopened Monday for the 49,000 public school students in Oakland, where Columbus Day is not a school holiday.

Chicago, meanwhile, began its second week of striking teachers Monday. Faced with growing public pressure to get 424,000 students back to the classroom, the teachers and the school board met to try to end the walkout stalled over pay raises and concessions.
