Teachers may strike over safety in class

Christchurch Press 24 Aug 06
Teachers worried about safety in the classroom might strike if they do not feel schools are supporting them, a union says.
The Post-Primary Teachers’ Association (PPTA) has developed guidelines to promote teacher safety and deal with disruptive and violent students.

Bob’s comment – I thought banning corporal punishment was supposed to reduce violence in schools. Perhaps it didn’t work!!
