    I'm in Colorado and we have done several "days of action" where teachers used their personal days to go protest at the capitol. Schools ended up closing for students because there weren't enough subs. We've gotten tons of media coverage, but almost none of it has been positive, and I think the general public is a little more pro-public ed here than AZ. On the nicer end of the coverage, we've gotten something like, "I support what the teachers are fighting for, but they need to do this after school or on weekends." I can only imagine things are much worse for the teachers in AZ.

    Which pretty much defeats the point of a strike, doesn't it?

    Exactly, although this wasn't really a strike. Besides the fact that no one will pay attention unless they're inconvenienced, the legislators we're trying to talk to aren't at the capitol on evenings and weekends :rolleyes:.
