From the Strongsville Patch:
Shouting "scab" and "this is our house," the teachers lined the sidewalks in front of the Strongsville Police Station during an open application session.
Superintendent John Krupinski said at least 100 potential substitutes applied for positions in Strongsville schools starting Monday, when teachers are expected to begin a strike.
"They are being fingerprinted and undergoing a background check," Krupinski said. "No one goes anywhere unless they pass it."
Meghan Paris of Cleveland, who has been a substitute teacher for four years, said she was hassled when she walked in to fill out an application.
"This lady was screaming in my face, calling me every name in the book," Paris said. "They said I was taking their job. But you're striking -- I'm not taking your job."
