EAST STROUDSBURG, Pa. (AP) - Teachers in an eastern Pennsylvania school district have gone on strike.

Picket lines were set up Monday outside schools in the East Stroudsburg Area School District, where classes had been canceled earlier until further notice.

The school board criticized the looming strike last week, saying it would accomplish nothing and “will only hurt the students and their families.”

The East Stroudsburg Education Association accused the board of taking a hard stance, saying the teachers had “put forth multiple proposals that are fair and affordable.”

Teachers have been working without a contract for two years, and the two sides remain apart on health care and salary issues.
