Re: Teachers don’t see a victory (The News, Sept. 19).
The strike is over, but it is lose-lose for all sides.
Teachers lost 10 per cent of their income. They can never make that up with a 7.5 per cent salary increase over six years.
The government made a mess of it and lost face, the parents and students suffered.
‘Good’ government is setting the foundation for a ‘win-win’ situation.
‘Good’ leadership brings the best out of people, not the worst.
Everybody lost in this dispute. Don’t forget, the government is still fighting its third law-suit about class sizes and composition with tax money against the teachers.
