On Marketplace tonight they were talking about a teacher's strike. The story ended with "A few parents I heard from were happy the school was open. They didn’t have to make other arrangements. But eventually, Griffith says, they’ll want their kids learning again." So they think that kids only learn when teachers are present? Kids learn all the time. Kids learn when they are playing in the dirt. I think sometimes kids learn more from interacting with the world than the do from struggling over paper and pencil.
