Parents: share your views on the teachers’ strikes in Britain | Education


Thousands of schools in England and Wales will shut in February after teachers voted to take industrial action, union leaders have announced.

National Education Union members will stage a mass strike on 1 February, followed by regional stoppages. The union is striking for a fully funded, above-inflation pay rise after the government said last summer that most teachers would receive a pay rise of about 5%.

Meanwhile, in Scotland, members of the Educational Institute of Scotland began 16 days of strikes on Monday. In two of Scotland’s 32 local authority areas, teachers are striking each day until 6 February.

We would like to speak parents in England, Wales and Scotland whose children are being affected, or will be affected, by the strike. How do you feel about the action? What impact will it have on you?

We would also like to hear from students, aged 18 and over, about their experience.
