Teaching our children should be an essential service to stop strikes

If you are, like me, fed up with teachers taking strike action and unsettling our children's education, please sign this petition.

Yet again, another strike about pensions, working conditions and having to work to retirement age is to take place next week. Not only does this disrupt our children's education, it means that hard working parents have to take annual leave; unpaid leave; or find alternative child care provision, potentially at the risk of further cost to the parents. Teachers won't need to worry though as they will already be off work.

I think that teaching of the next generation should be protected against the ongoing and incessant striking by teachers and the unions, after all, what is more important than preparing our children for adulthood.

If nurses, police and other emergency services cannot strike because they are essential, why not teaching of children up to the age of 16 years of age???

This e-petition has been rejected with the following reason given:

It did not have a clear statement explaining what action you want the government to take.

You can't sign this petition because it wasn't accepted for publication. But you can still give your opinion on it here at!
