ANOTHER Teacher Strike?

In one of our local communities the teachers are about to go on strike…because the District is out of money, has imposed a pay cut on everyone from the School Board, the Superintendent and everyone except the teachers. Now it wishes — must — impose the cut on them also.

Part of the reason is simply that the State will not be sending aas much money this year, because the student population has substantially decreased.

Quick Question for those of historical bent: Have you EVER heard of a “teacher strike” for ANYTHING except more money?

Ever heard of a strike to impose greater support for discipline in the classroom?

Ever heard of a strike for better academic standards?

Ever hear of a strike for more classroom time for the students?

Ever heard of a strike for more textbooks/CDs/computer access?

No, and neither have I!
