Teachers on strike

Saw a number of kids on the street today and was wondering about it. Later learnt that the teachers are on strike. The one -day strike was called by the National Union of teachers to protest against low wages. A number of working parents are fuming mad as they have to take off from work to look after their kids. I wonder what would happen to the kids whose parents are unable to get the day off.

I don't know why but I suddenly felt like listening to one of my old favourite songs - that we used to sing in school.

Pink Floyd - Another Brick in the Wall

I think education is important enough that teachers should be paid more. It should be a profession that attracts bright people - that way children will have better teachers. Also - Nice inclusion of "Another Brick In The Wall" --- Overall I'm more a fan of Pink Floyd's earlier work but that is a good one on The Wall.

yeah like music blog I also think that teachers should be paid more. In my country teachers get too much small amount and for this they have to lead a poor life.

I have to say that I believe teachers should be payed a lot more than they actually are. I also do not think that parents should get mad at the fact they went on strike. It is perfectly legal and within their rights to do what they want. Teachers should be paid more.
