Hundreds of people gathered Thursday to show support for the Rhode Island high-school teachers who were fired Feb. 23. The supporters held a rally outside of a meeting of the state school board, which faced a packed house for its first meeting since the mass firing at Central Falls. Union and district officials have agreed to try and work out an agreement to save the teachers' jobs, but a meeting time has not been set for the two sides to determine what measures should be used to turn around the low-performing school and how much teachers should be paid for new duties.
