1, 300 High School Teachers Strike in Israel; Seek Wage Increase

An estimated 25,000 high school pupils were again out of classes today when some 1, 300 teachers struck in a one-day protest walk-out.

The strike was against the refusal by the Ministry of Education to agree to various wage demands of the teachers. The strike was the second by the high school teachers since the start of the year.
