    So I was closer to the real issue than I imagined. You have had a rough trot with teachers so far this year then! I agree that sounds unfair and I do believe that it would be unsettling for the children. Hopefully next term is a better one for you.

    Don't paint everyone with the same brush though, you know? I knew a lady once called lois, hated her. So now anytime I hear the name lois, I immediately hate that person too.

    Well, not really. But one bad example doesn't ruin the whole batch.

    I haven't read all the other comments, only the op, but wow.

    My Aunty is a teacher, it's not all holidays and rainbows. They do A LOT of work outside of school hours, plus they are moulding/educating our future generations.

    Most of the time teachers are the ones who teach your children how to read and write confidently. They teach skills that you will use for the rest of your life.

    I think they do an amazing job and get very little recognition. Thank you to all the amazing teachers. I appreciate you!

    The disruptions are horrible, but I think that issue needs to be discussed with the school. I don't think it's fair to be angry about a strike because of the inadequacies of your experience at the school. Nor do I think you should tar all teachers with the same brush.

    It does seem odd your teacher only works 4 days, but usually the schools have a small pool of casuals (this is where I plan to start) that they use over and over. Teachers have what's called release, where they get half a day here and there to catch up on marking, to have professional development with the AP etc. I've never heard of using 10 different casuals, separate each time.

    Maybe the best course of action is to speak to your teacher or the principal, not demonise a whole trade bc of that 1 teacher, then be extremely rude to anyone here that tries to explain teachers actually do a great deal.

    That school does sound terrible :-/ I have seen the different teacher on Fridays thing quite a bit and it works really well when I've seen it. But the relief teacher each week thing is not on... Does your school not operate a list of relief teachers so at least the children are getting someone they know and hopefully getting some consistency!!

We could not afford that ( we are very much working class as are most of the families whose kids go to that school) so he would then cost the government $15,800 to send him to a public school that probably couldn't accommodate any more kids and is probably already under funded!!

    So in theory it's cheaper for the government to have me send him to a private school !
    Interested to know what your definition of working class is. I think my definition is very different to yours.

    I mean as in we are both working to be able to afford to send him to school ( if I continued to stay at home we couldn't afford it) , as are most parents at that school - some people assume you have to be quite wealthy which is definitely not the case !

    I agree it's odd thay they are using a different relief teacher each week... my DS1 had 2 teachers for prep last year, one on mondays and the other for tues-friday and the kids actually adapted and coped a lot better than the parents

    To me, working class would mean both parents working and still not being able to afford $15k per year in school fees.
