Teachers bullied

I WISH to thank all those classroom specialists, teachers, principles, administrative and support staff across NSW who are prepared to forgo a day's pay to defend conditions in NSW public schools.

I have children affected by the strike action, but as a parent concerned about the unrelenting assault on public education in this state I support the current industrial action.

Teachers are simply acting to maintain current levels of public education funding and to protect staffing levels.

Shame on the bully tactics of Barry O'Farrell toward the Teachers Federation.

A poorly educated society is just as dangerous (if not more) as one without other essential services, such as fire fighters.
