    we've come full circle with this wave of teacher strikes, which began in part with west virginia teachers going on strike and now sees them doing that again this year over this, which the union has deemed unacceptable:

    The state's House of Delegates and Senate have been going back and forth on different versions of a bill that would overhaul West Virginia's educational system. According to the Charleston Gazette Mail, the education bill raises pay for teachers and increases funding for public schools, but also permits the creation of charter schools in the state, which currently has none.
    The bill also funnels public money into a voucher system, called educational savings accounts, that could be used for private and online schooling.

    their last strike was pretty effective, so it remains to be seen what this one will do.
