This Might Work to Stop the TN Teachers Strike

I'm seeing a lot of push for the TN teachers to strike - it would be an illegal strike.

The threat is that the school boards couldn't replace ALL the teachers.

Well, wrong.

They could tap into an existing virtual K12 school, or allow parents to choose either a charter school, a virtual school, or home schooling.

Average teachers salaries - range of $41K to $55K - likely location dependent.

For a taxpaying worker with a high school diploma, that's a LOT more that he makes.

Yes, teachers are important (I'm a retired teacher, and many in my family are teachers). However, those salaries should be proportional to the average income and cost of living in that location. This is not the best time to hit the school boards up for a raise.
