Wake up and smell the crayons

I can't believe how parents are whining about the teachers' strike. We are all inconvenienced by having our children home when they're usually at school. The teachers are fighting for better conditions for our children. 51 students in a class that is supposed to have a maximum of 33. (33 is already way too high) Does this not say something needs to be done??
I would rather my children miss a couple of weeks and have to work harder later. If ANY improvement is made in our current education system, it will be easier for both students and teachers. This is NOT merely about teachers' pay, it is about what YOUR children are immersed in for a good portion of their growing lives. When our teachers are sending home notes asking for furniture fixtures and paper towel, there's a very small example something larger is very wrong.
