<p>D came home tonight with the announcement that all the teachers at the high school are no longer writing any college rec. letters. They are also no longer supervise any clubs including mock trial. And all sports practices will end at the end of the school day.They will not be available either before or after school for extra help and will not be doing anything that is not specified in their contract. Basically they will only work 8-3.
The teachers and the district are at a standstill over the teachers contract.</p>
<p>D had a friend go home in tears as she has a rec. due Monday for a scholarship at a private university and the teacher will not give it to her. She called the college and they will not make an exception.
I can't imagine this going on for to long or at least I hope not. A teacher strike is also possible.
Interestingly my D feels that the teachers are wrong to use this tactic to pressure the school board and feels she does not want me to complain. She feels they are wrong to use the kids as pawns.<br>
Has anyone had an experience like this.</p>
