Teachers in my school district in Colorado (Jefferson) and also in Douglas County schools, are striking and lobbying at the state Capitol. They claim Colorado ranks 46th in teacher pay – not true. The NEA (National Education Association) lied. Colorado teachers are 30th or 31st — closer to the middle of the pack.
Aren’t we paying them to teach in school — not strike to hold tax payers hostage? Public school employees should never strike. They should educate our children. At least that is what we would ideally want.
