This Teacher’s strike:

by Mat Thomas

This Teacher’s strike, this time round, shows that it is a good action and is developing in scope.We say this because it is opening up the long struggle for education led by educators themselves. The debate is opening up too about the wrecking of our dearest social programmes. It has a better quality than before.

Education is a right and not a privilege. The elite think the reverse. For us communists we have always seen education as a necessity, like Health. For the wealthy capitalist, education for the masses is only a “cost” and it can be cut to the bone or even destroyed. For the working class it is not only social vandalism it undermines the very fabric of civilisation. For us it is our skills, our well being and it makes us what we are. For this reason we must sympathise with our beloved comrade Teachers and we stand with them.
