Representatives of the government and the Secondary School Teachers Organization met Sunday afternoon in an attempt to reach a compromise on the teachers' demands and end the school strike, now in its tenth day. Israel Radio reported, however, that negotiations ended with no result and that SSTO leader Ran Erez said that the strike has become "a crisis of national importance." Erez said that at present, the intervention of the finance minister and the prime minister was necessary and that negotiations should continue at a level higher than that of the Education Ministry.
