In search of cooler heads on the 7th day
Contract negotiations resume at 1 p.m. today in the Dixon teachers strike. The walkout has frayed nerves. Seven days of lost educational opportunities for students is enough. Let negotiators not rest until a deal is reached.
As the Dixon teachers strike enters its seventh day, further signs are apparent of strained relations between the teachers and Dixon School Board.
We hope such signs represent no more than the routine posturing that adversarial negotiations sometimes produce.
Teachers, at a public meeting Wednesday evening sponsored by the Dixon Education Association, told parents in attendance that negotiations were at a standstill with no agreement in sight.
