Yesterday was a slap in the face to all of us who have supported teachers in the past. There are many, many of us out here who have gotten much smaller or no raises during the period teachers have gotten huge raises that will approach 30% since the Republicans took charge. Heck, when I worked for a major triad based bank for a decade we constantly got 1% raises and that was supposedly "great" according to them.

One other point, we need to contact our legislators to change the law on personal days. Teachers have to be granted up to 2 with no questions asked, which is supposedly why my school board cancelled as they could not deny most of the requests. Local leaders need to be able to have enough control to not be held hostage like yesterday. Just think of the scenario where teachers make rolling walkout days every month...week etc. If they coordinated just enough to close the schools constantly it would be a problem...and these radicals would not think twice about doing it.

I agree, Doug. Thanks.
