Summary
"In February 2018, West Virginia public school teachers had had enough. With some of the lowest salaries in the country and facing drastic cuts to benefits, they walked out. The strike, which lasted thirteen days, the longest in state history, resulted in a legislative victory and has inspired educators across the country to organize for better working conditions. 55 Strong: Inside the West Virginia Teachers' Strike documents this historic movement and offers unique, on-the-ground insights. Included are essays by teachers sharing their experiences before, during, and after the strike, interviews with allies protesting at the capitol, images from rallies, and a conclusion reflecting on the strike in the context of West Virginia's labor history by Elizabeth Catte, author of What You Are Getting Wrong About Appalachia." -- Publisher's description
