STRIKE: Teachers’ actions should have penalties

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.

  1. They are just simply passing on what they were taught by their liberal teachers, anarchy.

    By ignoring flagrant comtempt of court, Judge Chushcoff conveys how little respect he has for his own court.

    C’mon this strike “is for the children”.

    Besides, look what is being taught to them by the their teacher, and good ‘ole mom and dad: Don’t listen to what a judge says. In the end, nothing will happen and all will be forgotten.

    Has anyone figured out the hourly wage yet and compared it against other professionals such as accountants? Pretty high isn’t it?
