Crowds turn out to protest contract proposals in suburban Columbus school district

Contentious teacher contract talks in one Columbus suburb are attracting attention beyond the district.
The Columbus Dispatch reports that the Reynoldsburg proposal includes eliminating teachers' scheduled raises and their health-care plan. Rather than provide health-insurance coverage, the district would give teachers cash to purchase their own insurance.
Reynoldsburg educators, parents, students and community members gathered at a rally prior to the board meeting.
Both sides last met with a federal mediator on June 30. Talks are scheduled to resume in August.
