Denver teachers are planning to strike Monday after failed negotiations over base pay. The teachers and the school district disagreed on pay increases and bonuses in high-poverty schools and other schools considered a priority.
Teachers need to learn to code.
All wages, including the federal minimum wage, should at the very least increase proportionally to cost of living and inflation every year.
just teach the children

These teachers deserve better wages they are treated terribly
From Reuters: "higher pay with a salary structure focused less on performance bonuses and more on cost-of-living increases." And that's from a sympathetic news article! It tells you everything you need to know about public-sector unions.
teachers are spoiled and teacher unions are illegal by federal law that forbids government employees from forming unions. thats why Wisconsin was able to ban teacher unions.
After years of mouthing vacuuous catch phrases about valuing education and "building a better future for our children", all the while cutting teachers salaries, increasing class sizes and blaming teachers for the results of watered down curricula, how is anyone shocked at teachers striking for more money and respect?
"On strike for our students"?! Nice of them to hide their demand for more money behind children.
Just abolish public schools, give vouchers so the families can choose who educates their kids. Let the free market decide how much a teacher is worth.
Stupid teachers, wanting money for their work.
Here we go again...
