Columbus educators protest the city’s tax abatement policies on April 20, 2022 at Goodale Park.

Last week the Columbus City Schools Board of Education filed an unfair labor practice charge against the Columbus Education Association. The two sides met again on Wednesday with a federal mediator, but failed to reach a new contract agreement.

With a new school year right around the corner, will there be teachers in Columbus classrooms? We’ll discuss the latest news regarding a possible teacher’s strike.

Guests:

  • Matthew Rand, reporter for WOSU
  • Regina Fuentes, spokesperson for the Columbus Education Association and a teacher of 23-years
  • Jennifer Adair, president of the Columbus City Schools Board of Education
