Alhambra , CA United States

Los Angeles teachers approved an agreement with the Los Angeles Unified School District on Tuesday evening, ending a weeklong strike that brought the district to a standstill.

The agreement, which was posted by United Teachers Los Angeles, the union representing LAUSD teachers, encompassed much of what the striking teachers had asked for. The deal included a six percent pay raise, reducing class sizes, hiring a nurse at every school site, expanding library and counseling services and allowing for stronger union input into the co-location and operation of charter schools in the district.

The UTLA vote officially ended the strike, according to the Los Angeles Times. Teachers are expected to report to work on Wednesday.

“”I think it’s great, I think everybody is ready to get back in the classroom,” said Lisa Luna-Chan, whose child goes to school in El Sereno, an L.A. neighborhood bordering Alhambra. “The kids are going to [be in smaller classes] and having nurses in the schools is great for safety.”
