Do You Approve of Teachers Union Strikes?
Well, here we go again, folks! Teachers Unions are striking just as schools are set to open.
Year after year, millions of working parents around the country must make last minute arrangements to care for their children while teachers demand more pay and more benefits.
Many parents are simply choosing not to send their children to public school because they do not believe much learning is going on, and in the last decade, the number of homeschoolers has far more than doubled, according to the Department of Education. One private researcher estimates that as many as 2.5 million school-age children were educated at home during the 2007-2008 school year.
Considering todays economy, how can so many states operating in the red, and their citizens in general bringing home less money, afford to pay teachers more year after year?
