Then they can make their point without affecting their pupils' education.
but surely the point is that if the reforms drive too many teachers/dinner ladies/caretakers etc out of the profession the kids wont have an education. This can only be demonstrated by disruption to the education in the first place, to show what it will be like when the reforms have driven out the teachers and to show all you folks that think the education system is just there to provide free childcare while you and your partners work what it will be like when that benefit is taken away and you have to pay for your childcare, or decide which one of you will work and earn and which one stays at home and watches the kids.Or is that what concerns you? when the free childcare has gone and your lass tells you that she will be the working one, your balls wont be as big as you have thought?
