well, I am no big fan of teachers strikes; coming from Illinois, that threat came almost every year when the teachers wanted something, or were fissed off at the current mayor/governor whomever..

the teachers here deserve more $$, and the schools need more funding, but, going on strike with just 3 weeks left in the school year is something I dont support; and, having young children on the picket lines and such is counter productive and exploitive in the eyes of alot of parents..

lets see what the legislators decide here in the next day or 2; they are the ones who will make something happen, not the moronic governator...

If you think this is right, you're a better man than I. I don't think homeschool is an option for many honestly.

Where did anyone say anything about this being anti-political? Politics are what caused the current environment.

And a random bus pic with zero context proves nothing.

But at the same time, the amount of inconvenience has gotten everybody’s attention. Means it’s working.

The Senate had passed the Governor's proposal so they figured they had done their job. The House was listening to "point of personal privilege" speeches from members with protestors in the gallery and then adjourned about 1:30.

You mean we should be upset about public servants walking out on their jobs?
