We hear about strikes almost every year, but that is because there are so many school districts in the Puget Sound region, there's almost always one of them striking. If you don't pay attention to which actual district is striking, it just sounds like background noise, and it leaves the impression that Seattle goes on strike a lot, which it doesn't.
Please go ahead and lets review my points in a simplistic manner that you require. As insulting me is a typical Seattle response to any time anyone has the audacity and temerity to disagree with anyone about anything.
So this is not about YOU at all and having to find alternative arrangements for your progeny. Whom I assume are brilliant and pleasant as you. I can only imagine what dreams they are to have in a classroom. Glad I am not a Teacher imagine those parent student conferences.
And now what exactly are the three issues you have problems with regards to the strike and the contract negotiations. Or just that it is again an inconvenience to you and you having to give a shit about anyone other than yourself?
Is all this simplistic enough for you? I always love when the best one can come up with you are incoherent and write badly. Is this now acceptable or can I do something more for you? Such as mind your wonderful studious HCC children? Please tell me more about how my writing is terrible, I am a bitch or some other absurd justification for your hateful response that failed to find anything substantial in which to respond other than just well that.
My only complaint in this comment thread has been the characterization that the teachers haven't had a strike in 30 years, when they had a strike just this spring. I'm 100% on the teachers' side and am glad they are striking and hope we can convince the legislature to properly fund education so we don't have to keep jerking the kids around about whether or not they get to go to school on any given day. I just think it's disingenuous to say they're striking for the first time in 30 years. There's a calculated public relations reason they're saying that, and that's to put themselves in a better light, and despite the fact that I'm on their side, I have to call it bullshit.
And just in case you start complaining that I haven't given you the "three issues" you're so hot and bothered about because one time you learned one thing about formulaic 8th-grade-level writing (but obviously the basics of grammar or sentence structure), I offer you a pre-emptive "eat my ass."
