Breaking down the issues in the Neshaminy teachers strike

    Classes remain canceled for the nearly 9,000 students in the Neshaminy School District in Bucks County.

    The students have been out of class since Monday, when teachers went on strike. The walkout stems from a contract dispute that started four years ago.

    Bucks County Courier Times reporter Rachel Canelli says there are several contract issues, including salary and health care.

    Canelli joined NewsWorks Tonight host Dave Heller to break down the contract issues and the next steps for the district and its teachers.
