As usual the echo get it wrong. The King John school will be open for years 9 and 10 and not for year 8.

I would fine each teacher £100 unauthorised absence.
Just like they do for parents who take their kids out for a holiday. Hipocrites who moan all the time and only get 12 weeks leave a year plus bogus teacher training days.

Be interesting to see how many, if any, striking teacher man picket lines at their schools.

You seem to forget that teachers work 25hrs a day, seven and a half days per week. During the school holidays the can be found at the school, on their hands and knees licking the school corridors clean and when they are not doing that they will be down t' paper mill, pulping the wood and making the excercise books for the coming term so that they spend any free time they have scribbling in them with red biro.
They do, therefore, deserve the odd strike day, where they can stay in bed or put their feet up and watch an afternoon matinee on the TV. The public owes them this, at least.

Didn't strike today, my kids in my class had a fabulous time. The government won't listen to strikers so it's a waste of time.

This was a strike by all public workers not just teachers, stop keep on about teachers striking. There were firefighters, council employees and NHS workers and many more. Some very silly remarks left from people who really do not know anything about the teaching profession and I am fed up with people who keep on about how many weeks teachers have off, just because the children are on holiday it does not mean so are the teachers, get your facts straight. No I am not a teacher, just fed up with people who clearly have no idea what they are talking about.

The reason people go on about teachers is that they are always the ones bleeting on about how bad off they are when, in reality, they have a rather cushy little number compared to a lot of other public employees.

I am a teacher in the area and went on strike, as I always do. I do not earn a high wage in comparison with other professions, i am expected to work in my evenngs to enure that the tudents in my care get the deal that they deserve. I have six weeks holiday coming up. Thank God for that as after the push to get the year 11 through their exams i am exhausted. I studied for 4 years for this privilege and it is my right to strike. And whoever said the government doesn't listen is wrong. Mr Give has now gone and i like to think that my voice (and the days loss of earning) had something to do with it
