According to teachers and others officials, teacher strikes are not common and rarely happen. Combine that with the particulars of the contract negotiations and that mix caught the attention of the PSEA (Pennsylvania State Education Association)

   Representatives from the PSEA, including their president, came to East Stroudsburg today from Harrisburg for the fourth day of striking. Although the PSEA will not involve themselves into contract negotiations directly, they are lending their expertise.

   This also affected after-school programs, but in an effort to protect students from suffering the consequences of adult disagreements, ESSD Human Relations Director Steve Zall says all programs can meet and operate normally while there is a work stoppage. From what News13 understands, transportation will still not be provided. The Marching Band for both East Stroudsburg North and South were almost not allowed to perform during their Friday night football game.
