Still no contract for Wichita teachers

Contract talks between the Wichita school district and the teachers union ended without an agreement today.

The sides, at impasse over a contract for Wichita's more than 4,000 teachers, met with a mediator for about five hours, said Larry Landwehr, president of the United Teachers of Wichita.

They agreed to meet again Thursday.

Wichita teachers started the school year with their contract in dispute. In August, teachers rejected a tentative agreement that would have frozen their pay and possibly added a health insurance premium.
