From Ohio History Central
In the spring of 1981, teachers in Ravenna, Ohio went on strike for eighty-five days, the longest teachers' strike in U.S. history.
The various teacher strikes created a negative image for Ohio, causing non-residents to view the state and local governments, as well as teachers, as being uncaring about education and children. Because of this view, numerous businesses and people refused to relocate to Ohio.
