Last week, thousands of teachers in several regions of England went on strike over pay, pensions and working conditions. Just over a quarter of schools in affected areas were completely closed by the action, organised by the NUT and NASUWT teaching unions.

My feet ache. Had migraine all day. But nothing stopped me marching on #TeacherStrike Day. I'm proud to be there.


Children missed a day of school cos of ur money worries. What is it u care about? The kids or ur pocket. Kmt [kiss my teeth]


Girls had a lovely day off school today, conker hunting with my other half then baking cakes when they got back.

#TeacherStrike #DayOff


Apparently the #NUT #TeacherStrike didn't cover laundry, dishes or housework! #womansworkisneverdone
