Israeli teachers strike nears end
by UPI

JERUSALEM -- Israeli government and union officials met Tuesday in what was the hoped-for final talks to end a 54-day-old teachers strike.

The Secondary School Teachers' Organization and government officials were hammering out a deal that may include a 5 percent pay hike and reduced class sizes, according to Israeli Army Radio and The Jerusalem Post.

Officials said they hoped a deal might be reached Tuesday. Education officials said they're considering tacking on 10 extra school days in summer to make up for lost class time.

Other politicians and officials said that the strike's end without reforms means the nation had lost an opportunity to overhaul the educational system.
