    This is not an attack on teachers, i'm genuinely curious and keen to understand why they strike.

    I've seen the following reasons cited: Pay, pensions and working conditions. However these are fairly broad headings. Could someone shed some light please?

    Because they want more money.

    They should not strike though.

    Why isn't there a question mark at the end of the question?


    Sorry... They strike because they get paid very poorly compared to other jobs. Is it also because of taxes? :confused:

    I have 2 teachers in my house and can both work between 20-30 hours per week at home doing marking and lesson planning which is obviously unpaid work. The cause of this is due to increased contact time with students then they do not get enough PPA time at work to do these very important tasks. My wife has been known to go to bed at 02:00 due to marking as well as working most saturdays and sundays.

    Is this acceptable? I don't think so.
