Minneapolis and St. Paul parents brace for more turmoil: A teachers' strike


Renée Jones Schneider, Star Tribune

Michaelena Seals sat with her children Leaja Seals, 15, Adrian Walker III, 11, and Jeremiah Witherspoon, 8, in their St. Paul home on Tuesday. Seals has been anxiously preparing for the possibility of a teachers' strike in St. Paul, buying extra educational activities, snacks and organizing with her job to be able to be home with her children.

In the event of a teachers' strike, Marysol Rodriguez has a plan.

Her son, a sophomore at Edison High School in Minneapolis, will watch his three younger siblings while she heads off to work cleaning houses. Rodriguez, a single mother, doesn't like it, but that's the solution the family devised.

"He is very mature. He understands the situation," Rodriguez said in Spanish. "He supports me very much, but it is not his responsibility."
