teachers' strike in Poland

Thoughts on the Recent Teachers’ Strike in Poland

Popular YouTube vlogger (This is Poland) and teacher Peter Dowell discusses the recent teachers’ strike in Poland.

Do you feel that it is ever justified for teachers to go on strike?

Since the principal victims of any teachers’ strike will inevitably be children, rather than, say, big business, can such a devastating protest be morally justified?

If not by striking, how could impoverished teachers go about persuading the powers that be that they need a better working wage?
