Cleveland Radio this Weekend
We know that what happens in East Cleveland or Richmond Heights schools impacts the quality of life for all of Cuyahoga County. By the same token it is important to take note of what is happening in Strongsville, where the teachers strike enters its third week on Monday. A federal mediator has called a meeting between the StrongsvilleEducation Association [teachers union] and the Strongsville School Board forthis Sunday.

SEA President Tracy Linscott will be on Meryl Johnson’s radio show, “It’s About Justice” tomorrow to talk about the strike issues.

Johnson’s show will also feature speeches by two American pioneers: former Congresswomen Shirley Chisholm and Barbara Jordan. The lives and careers of these African American women are fitting topics during this observance of Women’s History Month.

“It’s About Justice” airs on WRUW-FM/91.1 Saturday afternoons from 1:30-2:30PM. Hear it online at
