I've not read all replies but I want to know where this teaching job is that entitles 12wks holidays and working hours of 8am-4pm (presumably weekdays only too??).
If such a teaching job exists, I will make very sure my husband take that job in an instant. That will be nicer that the 55+ hr week(including weekends), 4wks holiday and what I would also assume would be no extra curricular activities or week long camps... Maybe then he might be home for dinner, or to see his daughter every day
Yes, strikes may cause an inconvenience and I understand it disrupts the kids and their learning but don't go labelling teachers as having it easy.
