Sintesi dell'editore

To those paying attention, the recent strikes for higher teachers’ pay in West Virginia and Oklahoma are a harbinger of things to come. You can attribute the strikes to the stinginess of the states’ political leaders. After all, average annual teachers’ salaries in these states ranked, respectively, 49th-lowest (Oklahoma at $45,276) and 48th-lowest (West Virginia, $45,622) in 2016, reports the National Education Association. But that’s the superficial explanation. The deeper cause is that teachers — and schools — are competing with the elderly for scarce funds.The struggle will intensify.

"The Deeper Cause Behind the School Strikes: Teachers Are Competing with the Elderly" is from the April 08, 2018 Opinion section of The Washington Post. It was written by Robert J. Samuelson and narrated by Sam Scholl.
