NI schools are likely to be noisy because teachers are on strike.
A long-running disagreement over pay has led to the plan for five days of walkouts.
Non-teaching education staff went on strike last week because they didn’t agree with failed pay reform and budget cuts to education.
On Wednesday, November 29, there will be a half-day strike. After Christmas, there will be four more days of strikes.
In the 126-year history of their union, this is only the second time that head teachers have gone on strike.
In April, the National Association of Head Teachers (NAHT) and four other groups walked off the job for the whole day.
“We can’t wait any longer”
Liam McGuckin, president of NAHT NI, said that the move was “the last resort” for school leaders after “a year of dispute with no progress.”
“The system is failing our schools, our workforce and, most importantly, our young people,” he stated.
“We just can’t take it anymore.”
“We need immediate investment, without which the profession that holds together much of the fabric of society will be irreparably damaged.”
There is a teacher with scissors in her hand who says, “No More Cuts.”
