The week of February 11, 2019 the teachers of DPS choose to go on Strike. They went on Strike because teachers wanted better pay. Each morning all of the teachers were standing outside chanting and holding up their signs and walking around the sidewalk. All week students came to support their teachers and one of them was me. At first I didn’t want to go to school, but then I told myself I was supporting the teachers by going. I liked coming to school every day; Mr. Cowen really kept class interesting. I kept coming to school during the strike. and my Auntie always honked when we passed the teachers; the teachers always waved, walked, and chanted. After three days the teachers and the administrators resolved their differences and came up with a contract.
Though the teachers were gone for three days Park Hill stayed open; about two-thirds of the students came to school. We are happy the strike is resolved.
