Over the last several days, School of Law Professor David Allen Larson was interviewed by several media outlets regarding the possible Saint Paul Public Schools teachers strike. On Monday, the Saint Paul Federation of Teachers Executive Board announced that if disputed contract issues are not resolved, on February 24 it will ask its members to vote on whether they will leave their jobs and begin a labor strike. Different segments of the interview were broadcast during the 9 and 10 p.m. news programs on Monday, February 10, and can be viewed on FOX 9's website. On Tuesday, Professor Larson was interviewed by KSTP-TV and KSTC45 - TV regarding the increasing possibility of the strike and the lessons the Saint Paul Federation of Teachers may have learned from the Chicago Teachers Union strike in September 2012.
