Your opinions: Teachers on strike

The National Union of Teacher was on strike today.

Around fifty primary and secondary schools were at least partially closed today as 3,000 Cumbrian teachers supported a national strike.

We asked for your opinions.

Maybe parents should impose a fine on the school as the school would fine the parents if they took their kids out of school on unauthorised leave.

Isn't it sad that professional people feel that they have to resort to strike action to protect their terms and conditions of employment.
