Teacher Walkout

WESTLAND, Mich. (AP) -- Classes in the Wayne-Westland Community Schools are being been canceled for a second day today as teachers remain off the job in protest over lack of a contract.
The western Wayne County district's Web site says the teachers' are involved in "an illegal strike" and urges teachers to return to class while talks continue.
Union spokeswoman Melissa Sortman says about 850 teachers are on the picket line.
The Wayne-Westland Education Association says money and health insurance are major sticking points in its contract talks with the 13,000-student district.
