Wisconsin Teachers Will Return to Work


The protests against Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker’s proposed cuts to state worker’s pay and rights continue, but one contingent may not show up tomorrow. After six days of protesting, the Wisconsin Education Association Council has called on its members to return to their jobs if possible. “To educators whose contracts do not recognize Presidents’ Day, we call on them to return to duty by day – and find ways to be vocal and visible after their workday is done,” read a statement from Mary Bell, president of the nearly 100,000-member council. So much for school’s out.
