for some parents after disruptions
Parents appear to have mixed views about the prospect of a one-day mega-strike by 50,000 school and kindergarten teachers closing hundreds of schools next week.
Members of the Post Primary Teachers Association and the Educational Institute said the Education Ministry's offer of a $6000 pay rise over two years was not good enough and they would strike on Thursday.
They warned teachers were burnt out and needed pay and conditions that would keep them in the job and attract others to the profession.
Primary and secondary school teachers have struck on the same day only once before, in May 2019, when they enjoyed a high-level of public support and closed about half of the country's schools.
