Re: "More teachers OK strike to protest inaction" (TNT, 5-6).
I just want to state the obvious: These strikes are illegal under state law. (Check out Rob McKenna's April 20 essay on smartergovernmentwa.org.)
The teachers won't be penalized; the students will be penalized in their loss of learning on that day.
This is demonstrating to students that it's OK to do something illegal as long as you aren't "caught." Pretty sad that adults need to resort to illegal actions to make their voices heard.
