Members of the Cleveland Teachers Union have rejected a tentative agreement reached with the Cleveland Metropolitan School District last month.

The vote to ratify the tentative agreement failed by a 51.4% to 48.6% margin.

“It was a close vote, but enough of our members clearly do not believe that the Tentative Agreement fixed the broken promises that occurred over the last 3 years. Our members know that there is still too much testing for our students and that evaluations must become significantly more fair.” said Cleveland Teacher Union President David Quolke in a statement.

In their official statement, the CMSD said the following:

We are disappointed to learn that the Cleveland Teachers Union’s membership rejected the Tentative Agreement reached between the Union and the District, by 102 votes.
