PPS Teachers' Strike Continues

(Portland, OR) -- Classes are canceled again today in the Portland Public Schools district as the teachers' strike continues. Yesterday, Mayor Ted Wheeler and City Commissioner Carmen Rubio announced the City of Portland will fast-track nearly 20-million-dollars to help resolve the strike. The money comes from the Portland Clean Energy Fund and was already destined for the school district. Around 17-million dollars will go toward building improvements per teachers' request and three-million-dollars will be spent on student-led climate initiatives.
