  1. It is so sad that the result of the conflict is a direct negative impact on children’s education. The future is dependent on education.
    Union is protecting and fighting for their members. Children are their pawns.
    Authorities are protecting their budgets. Children are their pawns.
    I know this is an over simplification of the issues and I am far removed. However, children’s education is the loser and that is despicable IMO.
    Children’s education is an INVESTMENT, not a cost!
    The best teachers deserve well above average salaries to stay teaching these innocent kids.
    I implore both sides to get a resolution IMMEDIATELY!
    Where I live has many similar issues and it is all so disheartening.

    Love to the children.
