The 11th Hour

Wow. With only 9 hours before the school day started, the teacher union and the school board have reached an agreement, and “averted the strike.”

I don’t know about you, but I think this was a bit inconsiderate. It’s one thing to put everyone out and call a (trivial, no more than 3 day) strike. But it’s another to, at the 11th hour, cancel the strike, and tell everyone that they are expected to report “as normal” the next day.

One would think that they would have the courtesy to at least “let them off” for a day.

So a revision of winners and losers.  The BIG LOSERS here are the students, and the parents.  But then again, we knew that one going in.

Do you think the teachers will be lenient if homework isn’t done?
