However you white-wash the fence of debate when a strike is chaotic, the true colour is always about the colour of money.
Call it job security or benefits or contract disputes— it’s all about the money.
Certainly unions have a place in this work society as evidenced by the gains in fairer job equity and absolutely the administration of any entity has a duty to carry out their strategy.
Granted, but here’s the thing: How about the drawn swords of angry words be put down, negotiated in good faith with all represented sides after teaching times and let class bells ring again for the students who paid for the privilege of continued education?
I fail to see how this would weaken either side.
On the contrary, it demonstrates the paying students and their parents and guardians are respected and disagreements can be worked out in real time virtual life without jeopardizing innocent parties.
Parents and students have been left in a lurch and denied their futures because they need to consider renting apartments with lease dates, or rethinking additional courses to rebalance their finances just to keep ahead of fees and tuition loans not to mention loss in the eventual job market. They deserve the contractual expectation of decent education after paying in advance.
After all, without students there is no need for teachers or administrators. Jeanne Holden Cornwall
