    Teacher Strike

    Well as you probably guessed by the title, the teachers in my school district are striking soon. They have 2 meetings left, but no one suspects any resolutions for pay, health benefits, etc.

    I was just wondering if any of your teachers went on strike. It sucks because we might not have any spring break and a shorter summer.

    My middle school was on strike for a short time, but the problem was resolved quicker than I was hoping for.

    Hopefully your school resolves their situation soon though, no spring break and a shorter summer would be just brutal. I am sure they will though, most of these tend to not last too long.

    Well, the strike is set for Tuesday, the 29th. I heard that they can only go for 2 weeks, but I think they can go longer if you take away almost all of spring break + 2 weeks.

    They haven't had a contract for about a year though, so it's looking pretty grim right now.

    Well that sucks. Shorter summer? I'd be pissed as hell. It's too short already. Hope the teachers get what they want.

    I've experienced 2 teacher's strikes.
    Both lasted 2 weeks, and didn't result in us having shorter vacation periods.
    It was kind of amazing.

    ^^Really?? Wow, we have to go 180 days a year before some date in June. They'll do whatever it takes for us to sit at that school for 7 hours...

    If something isn't working try turning it off and on again

    We've had that before, it sucked. Don't be a teacher is the moral of this one, poor pay for dealing with children isn't my idea of a job

    there's been quite a few teachers strikes in melbourne.
    they deserve better pay, eh?

    i want to be a teacher *beams*

    be daring, be different, be impractical,
    be anything that will assert integrity of purpose
    and imaginative vision against the play-it-safers,
    the creatures of commonplace, the slaves of the ordinary.
