Edwardsville, Ill (KSDK) -- Edwarsville teachers and the school board will return to the negotiating table Thursday night.
The teachers want a raise and the district wants to freeze salaries because of state budgets. Teachers say this is also about class size. They're worried classes will continue to grow and teachers will not be given the resources or help to keep up.
If a deal is not reached, the teachers could go on strike as early as next week.
Edwardsville students went back to class Wednesday.
