This is not the way to do it. All those teachers are doing is hurting the kids and showing them the liberal way which is killing our economy! It is not right to just WALK OUT and walk out on them.

You have a problem, get a petition and go in front of the school committee. They are not showing responsibilities to our children.

Can't leave a classroom unattended, so this must have been after school hours, after students had left for the day perhaps .... All schools or just one and which school(s) were they at?

the teachers didn't walk out! they just all walked in together at the time the are due to come in per their contract. They didn't come to school early like 90% of them usually do.

Teachers just showing solidarity during a brutal negotiation. They all walked in 3 minutes early, no one was late. No student was walked out on, not a minute of work was missed.

Good for them.

Please get your facts correct before you state anyone is "hurting the kids." No one walked out; as others stated it was simply a show of solidarity amongst the teachers. Teachers of Everett work very hard, love their students & show/teach them responsibilities. It is very ignorant & small minded to say they are not showing responsibilities to the children.

My friend just started working for the EPSS this year... I believe it is around $45,000 / yr.; however, from what she was saying I don't believe salary is the primary issue. Good to the such unity among the teachers.

The fact is the teachers are not showing the kids the proper thing to do. When kids are coming to school, and they see all the teachers outside in their "united front" they have no idea what's going on.

No problem with people having a "united front" but do it the proper way, at a school committee meeting or right before it as members are walking in. Not in the morning for parents and students to see. Then, when the kids graduate and get jobs, they think it's ok to just stand in a united front and if they are not union, they will be fired. I have my FACTS. Thank you

Why shouldn't parents be aware? I'm glad that I'm up to speed on such issues because this may have an immediate impact at the school level. Also, this may be an opportunity for parents to engage in conversation with their children about the importance of advocating for oneself. Lastly, I would hope that by the time they graduate and enter the workforce that our children have the confidence & understanding to act on their own behalf no matter what sector employs them, but especially if they are employed by a union shop! My opinion, observing such things provides an overall greater good!!

I think their actions are a good way to send their message ~ it's a strong united approach & most of the time it only takes one time to get the "talks" started. Good luck Teachers!

Sure, but what was accomplished by parents and students "wondering" what is going on, seeing the teachers all standing out outside in the middle of winter?? My first thought was that something happened.

If you have an issue with salary, contract or whatever, deal with it with the appropriate people. They signed their contracts and let the unions do their jobs!!! Dont put added stress on parents that take their kids to school and have to worry (even for a minute) that something happened in the school.

These actions were the wrong thing to do, and what they were actually saying (without coming out and saying it) is that they threatening to strike. If that happens, then I hope it's just like when the air traffic controllers went on strike in the 80's and Ronald Reagan fired them all. Anyone can be replaced. It's a life lesson, you cant everything you want.

I respect your opinion but sometimes the message needs to be sent like they did. I don't know the facts but I do know the stance they took, I've been there. I dont think that parents and children need any stress so I can only imagine that the issue they are trying to resolve must be important. Teachers are responsible for our kids 6 plus hours per day and for their education so I am not going to judge them. I do, however, have no use for the Superintendent & the school committee the are all corrupt. I think an actual "strike" would be far more stressful to the kids/parents. Oh yeah last thing, I am not a teacher!!! Just a parent.

Did anyone ask the teachers why they were out there? Well I just called one a got the story. Do you know this has nothing to do with money? The teachers voted down their last contract with a 5% raise attached to it because they are advocating for more quality professional development so they can be the best educators they can be for their students.
Everett teachers...if you need support, I am there for you and will be proud to do whatever I can to help you. If you are standing out again, I will join you, with my child! I am proud of your actions!
