Do you support the teachers' strike?

Georgia Reporter from Stuff

Hi neighbours,

Do you think primary teachers and principals should be striking? Thousands of teachers have taken industrial action on Wednesday, with dozens of rallies planned around the country. They aim to gain attention for better pay, conditions and incentives to attract new teachers. Although about 30,000 people in the profession are involved in the strike, not everyone agrees with it.

So, what are your thoughts on the strike? Do you think teachers deserve better pay? Or should they have stayed around the negotiating table for longer? Are you a teacher or parent with views on the topic? Let us know in the replies!

Gap Filler is turning an unused site in the central city into a car park. Profits will be go towards community projects such as free cycle maintenance workshops. A great idea and so handy for the Margaret Mahy playground, Isaac Theatre Royal and New Regent St.
