Cleveland teachers could soon be headed for a strike. On Tuesday the union gave a legally-required 10-day notice of its intent to strike if a contract is not reached.

The union has been without a contract since April. A strike could mean up to 4,300 educators picketing from 100 schools.

“Our most critical issue on the table right now is about evaluations, and how do you make those evaluations fair and in a place where we can move forward,” said David Quolke, union president.

There is concern too much emphasis has been placed on test scores.

“When our compensation and our potential status for layoff are connected to these evaluations, it’s critical for our members that they can have faith and confidence that this system is fair,” said Shari Obrenski, who teaches high school.
