Hooray for Parents!

Today was a "board tour," meaning the school board made visits to several school sites. Over the past two weeks, several groups of parents have been organizing in support of the teachers. Today they picketed at four of the schools being visited. I was able to drop by and thank them, and snapped a few pictures. The first group was rather small, since it was early morning on a very cold day.

The second school had a larger turnout, and this group was joined by the parents from the first school.

I heard there was picketing at a third school, and then at lunchtime there was a pretty good-sized group at a fourth school. This group was joined by teachers who came outside with their own signs since it was their lunch period.
