I am curious about something.

With the low pay and heavy workload the teachers in Cabell County have, does anyone know if they have ever went on strike or considered it to get more pay and benefits?

I personally feel they are underpaid and should have a better benefits package.

The teachers union is responsible for our pathetic educational system. They are employed/promoted based on tenure, not job performance. In other words, they care about their jobs...not the kids.

I know there are some good teachers, but just as many bad ones.

I have to agree with Semprion on this one. Teaching is a profession where quality of work makes all the difference.

I think I remember a teachers strike in the early 80's. Seems like it...

My point exactly!!!

When u call the school board to try and bring this kind of attention to them they will not take your call or even return your call!! If you have a sick child and you try to talk to them and/or explain what is going on they don't care enough to call you back to even help with anything!! I had to go higher on the board to get a call back from someone I had to get in touch with!! She called one time because I went over her head, but never returned any more phone calls for my Childs dr requestes!! I had to pull my child out of school because they wouldn't even try to help with his disability!!!

This is the cabell county school for ya!!

Right. The schools don't help disabled kids. Sure. Sounds very plausible.

Or you're lying and don't send your kid to school enough and just have a bad case of the red ass.
