The teachers in Tacoma, who ignored a court order to return to work, are teaching their students that insubordination to authority is exciting and cost-free. We can expect their students to emulate their behavior later in the classroom.
To minimize the damage these teachers have caused, the judge should impose sanctions. A fair assessment would be a $100 fine and one day in jail for each teacher who did not obey the court order. Their students need to see that actions have consequences.
In this instance, even if the teachers are right, they are wrong.
