Teachers went on strike in West Virginia, Oklahoma and Arizona to demand higher wagesand now teachers in other states may follow suit. Teacher salaries across the country have been stagnant or falling for years, and many educators are fed up with the status quo. If striking is the only way teachers can be fairly compensated, then so be it. But others argue teachers shouldn't strike because it deprives students of their education.

After teachers in West Virginia, Oklahoma and Arizona went on strike for better wages, teachers in other states have begun talking about striking in their own state. Public school teachers are historically underpaid, and the erosion of organized labor coupled with tax cuts that slash funding for education have only exacerbated the problem.

Teachers across the country are rebelling against years of stagnating wages and deep education cuts. Following a successful nine-day teachers strike in West Virginia, thousands of Oklahoma teachers walked out of classes, demanding better pay and more funding for their struggling schools.

If we really want to show our teachers appreciation, we should support them when they demand higher wages.

But not everyone supports teacher strikes. Nobody becomes a teacher so they can get rich. Shutting down schools means parents and students will have no place to go. Is striking really the best way to go about asking for a raise?
