Reynoldsburg school officials spent weeks preparing for the start of a teachers strike. Apparently, it wasn’t enough, parents and students said. They shared stories yesterday about chaotic conditions in the buildings and a lack of learning in classrooms across the district. Parents who visited schools said there weren’t nearly enough substitute teachers to cover all classes, so similar classes were combined with one teacher.
Reynoldsburg police locked down the district's Livingston High School campus this morning after fights broke out among students inside. Outside, teachers are on the picket lines in a labor dispute with the district.
