Would you cross a picket line to bring you kids to school *update*

School remains open, busses are running but teachers are on strike and picketing in front of the schools. No teachers teaching classes.

Eta-my bad...They didn't vote to strike. They got locked out, but still picketing

This lady was trying to drop her son off at the YMCA daycare that is attached to the Catholic school where the teachers are picketing it is in no way affiliated with the school other than they share a building. The lady in red is the president of the local chapter of the teachers union

No. Why bring kids if there are no teachers?

Absolutely not.  I would never ever cross a picket line.  I would go get them coffee.  #solidarityforever

I'm assuming if the busses are running and the school is open, something has to be put in place, but it doesn't say what on the web site

Depends on why they're picketing. Most likely I'd enroll yds in online schooling. Ds16 too.

Yes. My child's education is more important than whatever they are picketing.

No.  What would be the point?  There are no teachers there.

It would depend.  I know at my son's school, the teachers are well paid and receive excellent benefits.  I can't imagine what they'd have to complain about.  If it was a public school where good teachers are paid dirt wages and have to provide supplies on their own, then no I would not cross.

But If no one is there to teach them
Why take them? She mentioned no teachers were actually teaching due to being on strike.

They have something in place because the school is open. I'm assuming scabs or non unionized sub teachers
