Striking Denver teachers wearing red packed a library meeting room Tuesday for a public negotiating session with district leaders on the second day of a strike over pay. The meeting, facilitated by a federal mediator, was the first time the sides met since talks broke down over the weekend.
Red is the color teachers in states across the country have donned in the past year amid similar strikes and protests for better pay and working conditions.
All schools remained open and staffed by administrators, substitutes and teachers not participating in the strike. At the start of the talks, superintendent Susana Cordova acknowledged that students were not getting the kind of instruction they normally would and said she was committed to reaching a deal to end the strike.
