    I didn't get past the OP.

    8-4 my a$$. Give me a flipping break.

    Spend a week inside your child's classroom and then see what you think.

    Hopefully pps have said it better than me. Blergh!

    Nurses get 6 weeks holiday are year, not 4, if you work over a 7 day week. The difference with us, we leave work at work. My sister leaves school to come home and prepare for the following day. If she's sick she's still expected to prepare lesson plans. They deserve what they get, every last cent and every last day.

    If you have such a lack of respect & understanding for the teaching profession perhaps you should home school. At least then you wouldn't be inconvenienced by any actions the teaching community take to ensure our children receive a decent education.

    I am sorry that your teachers failed you, I'm sure they tried their best.

    Hey, I'm not the one claiming they only work 1/3 as hard as teachers.
    The children are the reason they had to strike in the first place or has that completely bypassed you?
    Next you will be whinging that your child has had services cut and wondering why teachers let it happen.

    Holy Moly
    Lois, do you really feel that way or are you just angry and feeling attacked? I'm asking this nicely, not to have a go at you?
    Teachers don't have it easy at all, they can't just take the afternoon off to make a Dr appt, they don't get an hour lunch break, plus morning and afternoon tea, (or multiple smoke breaks), they can't slacken off if they are tired, they have huge responsibilities educating our future generations, they deal with mountains of BS from kids and their parents, they do hours of prep, hours of marking, PD days during the 'holidays'. Its full on! I think they deserve to be well-paid, and, as a mother with school-age kids, I think they deserve to be well-supported in their work, which is what they are striking over.

    Kinda like how the nurses were demonised for daring to ask for better pay, most of their striking was actually to benefit us, as patients.

    I support the teachers 100%.

    Ok I really do think you need to sit back and relax op. there are pages upon pages in this thread of people explaining not only the basic ins and outs of what a teacher does day to day, but also what the strike is really for.

    For you to appear hours later and go straight back into attack mode suggests that you are unwilling to open up and actually take on board these factors, so set is your mind that teachers are in the wrong.

    If you were a child in my classroom, I would change my approach. Maybe try something more hands on... Unfortunately words are the best thing I have in this situation. So I will say this- please stop being insulting to so many members here. It's hurtful as a teacher to hear how a parent can hold us and our profession with so little disregard.

    3 days eh? how will you cope?




    Most people do, but they only get 4 lousy weeks a year. Do you think they work 3 times as hard as say, nurses?
    Oh my rude much....

    If read this thread you would know teacher actually work longer than a 40 hour week.

    They do many hours of unpaid work on top of that 40 he week.

    They don't get 12 weeks holidays. They have to attend school when kids are not there. The have lesson plans to write and meeting to attend. I know my kids teachers pay out of their own pockets to go do extra training especially those dealing with special needs kids.

    They do only get 4 weeks of holidays with leave loading.

    All I can say is I have met so many caring teachers. In fact I got a phone call at 6pm tonight to check my child got a email from his teacher. She had gone out of her way to help him with a assignment that's due tomorrow. So she started work at 7 am and still working at 6 om and will after dinner go back to marking more assignment.

    No you didnt but when you say teacher earn 'every dam second of their holiday' and they get 3 times as many holidays as nurses (and everyone else), you are in turn saying nurses (and everyone else) only work a 1/3 as hard as teachers.
