About this Article

Highland Park-area teachers remain on the picket lines after going on strike Tuesday. Officials at North Shore Elementary District 112 announced on their website the school board and teachers union were unable to reach a settlement agreement after a late-night negotiating session. Lacking a new deal, union leaders called a strike that forced closure of the district's 12 elementary and middle schools in Highland Park and Highwood. The walkout has idled more than 4,600 students.
