Teacher's strike looms in Oregon Trail School District
With a strike scheduled to begin Tuesday in the Oregon Trail School District, parents are beginning to debate the option of bringing in substitute teachers.
Other parents say that option would produce animosity between the teachers and substitute teachers, and they do not want their children taught in a hostile environment.
A 1999 strike by Fern Ridge area teachers near Eugene involved substitute teachers who were jeered and threatened when they crossed picket lines.
Threatening someone is a crime. Are your kids being taught by criminals? If you heard Lars Larson yesterday he had a board member for the Oregon Trail District talk about this issue and apparently the board is not on the side of the children or the taxpayers. (or law abiding citizens) When election time rolls around some heads should roll in the Oregon Trail District.
This news story is about a teacher strike, substitute teachers, and violence by teachers but KATU's accompanying photo is one of several sad faced kids. How about a picture of teacher's screaming at other teachers? Wouldn't that be more appropriate?
