A judge in Kent, Wash., was expected to weigh in last week on a teacher strike that shut down the fourth-largest school district in Washington. A King County Superior Court judge could decide whether to fine striking teachers who have defied a back-to-work order. The 2-week-old strike by 1,700 teachers is delaying classes for more than 26,000 students at 40 schools.
