From Twitter

On Tuesday, thousands of teachers in several English regions participated in a one-day strike over pay and conditions, and the pace of government educational reform. Many took to Twitter to discuss the action.

I'm standing up for a profession that has lost well-deserved respect due to this government.


I'm on strike for the future of a state education system focused on children's needs run by professional, trusted teachers.


I suspect many will be using the day to catch up on work. So physically not in classroom but still working.


I cannot continue to teach in this climate. Workload unmanageable, no work-life balance. But I am looking after my ill toddler.
