(Providence, RI) -- There's a renewed effort to get a new contract for teachers in Providence. The Providence Journal reports the president of the Providence Teachers' union met with representatives of Mayor Jorge Elorza's administration on Tuesday, constituting the first negotiation session the two sides have had in seven months. Since talks broke off in January, the union has protested Elorza's State of the City speech and staged an informal picket of an education forum. The last contract for the teachers expired almost a year ago.
