Unhappy with action by teachers union

I was shocked to learn that teachers in Bellingham, along with other county districts, planned to not show up for work one Friday in an effort to protest a perceived lack of education funding. What planet do these teachers and their union representatives live on? Both the House and Senate budgets call for increasing K-12 education funding by a whopping $1.3 billion, the largest such increase in state history. Instead of saying “thank you” for the extra cash, I believe the teachers have once again used our children as pawns in their selfish game of gimme.
