I have to strongly disagree with your newspaper's editorial that Kentucky's teachers should not strike.
Although your editorial attempted to be fair, it disgusted me to read the overtones that workers should be happy with what they have and not question anything. For far too long, American workers played the give-and-take game where they give more out to employers and than they ever receive back. It's true that everyone who is working in this country who has medical benefits is facing the same thing as the teachers, but that does not make the situation right nor does it merit employees to simply shut up and take the pablum that Bush Republicans (not true Republicans in my eyes) and some corporation-friendly media sources preach.
So what that Kentucky has a no-strike law for teachers? If teachers show true solidarity in their unions and strike, the school systems and Fletcher can't fire them all and that little rule will not mean a thing if the state's education system comes to a halt.
