Students Navigate Scylla and Charibdis in Boston

This Thursday will be a day off for students, as teachers stage a one-day strike to draw attention to their demands. The teachers want a 22% raise spread over 4 years, while the school system is offering only 10%. The former is rather high, the latter extremely low.

This is as close as the two sides can get? The city and the teachers deserve each other.
