In the USA, there are tens of thousands of teachers in open rebellion, in Oklahoma, West Virginia, Arizona, Kentucky, and things are heating up in Pennsylvania, Illinois, Iowa and Colorado.
Teachers in Algeria staged a month-long strike earlier this year and are getting ready to walk out again, and in next-door Tunisia, teachers just staged a one-day walkout.
In Argentina, teachers are building a permanent teachers' "white tent" city to continue a two-day national strike; teachers in Uruguay just walked out for 24 hours; 16,000 teachers in Chihuahua, Mexico walked out last week, joining teachers' strikes in Oaxaca, Chiapas, and Michoacán. Teachers are also striking in Brazil and Venezuela.
Tens of thousands of French teachers walked out on Mar 22, Scottish teachers are about to strike, and UK wide, higher ed teachers are refusing to certify as sellout deal struck by their cowardly leadership.
Teachers across the world confront the same enemies: governments that cut wages, pensions, and education funding to boost the profits of the banks and corporations, and servile trade unions that isolate strikes and force workers to place their trust in the same capitalist political parties responsible for the attack on public education. Teachers’ greatest strength lies in linking with their coworkers, and the working class more broadly, across the world in a united fight to secure the social right to education with a good income and fully funded pensions for every teacher on earth.

Just as in almost any industry that seeks high-demand, well-trained workers, certification often becomes key. For project managers, that means anyone who’s serious about serving in that role with a respected company knows they’re going to need the seal of approval in one of the field’s most recognized methodologies before they stand much of a […]
Popping a new battery in a smoke detector or adding salt to your water softener are easy fixes. But if you run into trouble or a necessary repair in a cramped, tight place, sometimes with no obvious fix or easy access, it can be a pretty frustrating exercise. Since flying blind is the absolute worst, […]
