The teachers' union had launched a full-scale walkout about two weeks before the end of the last school year. Seventeen-year-old Queena Zeng said she was not blaming either side for the impasse, but she was afraid her education would be impacted negatively.

It was ratified on September 18th, allowing half a million students to start their school year.)
