The statewide strike that began Feb. 22 enters a new week Monday with no resolution in sight.

Teachers are protesting salaries that are among the lowest in the nation and rising health care costs. And a legislative committee is preparing to address how to reconcile separate teacher pay raise bills.

Charleston fifth grader Kelsie Hodges has taken some extra skating lessons with her mother at a South Charleston ice arena.

Meanwhile, teachers are talking of finding other ways to supplement their income as the dispute drags on.
