Larson Interviewed

Professor David Allen Larson was recently interviewed by KSTP 5 Eyewitness ABC TV News regarding the tentative agreement between the Saint Paul Federation of Teachers and the Saint Paul School District. Larson declined to identify either party as a winner or loser in the labor contract negotiation, describing the agreement as a compromise. For example, the agreed upon $22 million salary increase is halfway between the union's demand for $28 million and the district's $16 million offer. The interview was part of the lead story for the 10:00 p.m. news program on February 24, 2014 and is available for viewing below or on KSTP's website.
