The State

Huntington Beach elementary school teachers staged a one-day strike to underline their anger about threatened budget cuts and lack of agreement on a pay raise. At least 180 of the 220 teachers in the district carried signs and chanted in front of eight elementary schools. Some of their catcalls were directed at Bill Honig, state Supt. of Public Instruction, who had denounced plans for the strike, saying the teachers were being misled about finances by “renegade” union officials. Honig said that all school districts in the state are short on money this year because the state only granted a 2.54% increase in funds.
