Bigmouth strikes again

Teaching unions perplex me for a number of reasons but, for this blog, I will focus only on today’s decision of two teaching unions (NUT and ATL) to strike over pensions. Striking is supposed to be a last resort, but how can this possibly be the case while there are still discussions going on?

Striking obviously has an immediate impact upon students in the classroom, but the date of the strike, 30th June 2011, happens to coincide with INSET (training) days in many education authorities. This leads me to seriously question the reasons and purpose of this particular strike.
