Teachers should be made to pay for people's child care. Less than 25% of the nut union voted on the strike & only 92% of the teachers wanted to strike. Poor teachers only get 14 weeks holiday a year. We should be able to fine them if they don't do a proper job. So a lot of them would owe a lot of money. GO BACK TO WORK & STOP LETTING THE KIDS DOWN YOUR MENT TO BE TEACHING.

Nicky Morgan says the strike is not popular with "School leaders"... who are they? The businesses that run the privatised academies, perhaps? After all, they've fewer days to meet their targets and we all know what happens to an academy that doesn't meet it's target. She goes on to say "It is also not popular with pupils who are missing out on a day’s education"... Nicky Morgan, how out of touch are you with the real world? With all the targets and brutal measures you put in place, you are making school a pretty miserable place to be. I can assure you , my kids are happy with this strike. And finally, since when does a day's strike action put a child's education at risk? Who, Nicky Morgan, are you trying to fool with these lies and attempts at installing fear in parents who want the best for their kids. Yes, it is really inconvenient for parents who aren't normally around during the school day... but I am with the teachers and the head teachers on this. Do you think, maybe one day, our minister for Education might actually have some experience in Education?

Ashley poor teachers. We all have targets to reach. Maybe they could reach them easier with only 10 weeks holiday a year. I am self employed &am lucky to get 2 weeks holiday a year.

Teachers have a pretty cushy time of it with short days, all those holidays and revised pay which is pretty competitive (with working in Tesco stacking shelves..) Can't think why we don't all retrain to become science & maths teachers - there's loads of local vacancies, you won't struggle to get a job - and you get an even bigger salary if you're willing to work in central London

Bob – Why on earth are you working for yourself and feeling lucky if you get 2 weeks off?
Instead of moaning about how unfair life is, why don’t you pull your finger out and get a job as a teacher? Instead of dragging everyone down to your poor and unlucky standards, why not celebrate the few professions who are able to have some control over their employment.

It is also "you're" - short for "you are". You obviously don't value teachers, and perhaps this is because you paid so little attention to your lessons when you were at school.

Bob - whatever argument you were trying to make re teachers / teaching is totally undermined by your display of illiteracy! I initially thought you were being sarcastic!

NUT - the union that likes to say no.
Had a heavy weekend, plus the strain of Monday, need another day off to recuperate.
Bugger up everyone else's day.
Getting some practice in for 6-weeks paid holiday, then an Insect Day, then another easing into the job day off, then another stressed out day off, then a preparing to go back to work day.
Starting to be competition for Southern train drivers, to name one group.
Mind you, I wouldn't teach for all the Insect Days in China - I feel a headache coming on just thinking about it.
