Lake Forest teachers strike enters second day

Posted: Updated:
LAKE FOREST, Ill. (FOX 32 News) -

The teachers strike in Lake Forest is entering its second day with no end in sight.

The two sides met with a mediator Wednesday but made no progress and no further talks are scheduled.

The union representing about 150 teachers called a strike early Wednesday after contract talks broke down.

The strike affects 1,700 students at Lake Forest High School.

The school board says its latest contract offer included substantial raises.

But teachers say it's not enough to keep quality teachers in the district.
