Saturday Soap Box:  Our View

Is it Just Us?

Or have we seen an increase in strike votes taken recently?  We wonder whether the Chicago teachers strike served as inspiration, or perhaps it's the new process that requires a longer time between when teachers become dissatisfied and when they can actually walk?

Here's a novel suggestion.  Go back through your archives and count all the teacher's strikes over the last several decades.  Then you won't have to ask your readers, you will be able to tell them.  Just saying.
