Teachers: tell us why you’re striking in Britain

We would like to hear teachers’ views following the announcement that NEU members will strike in England and Wales

Following the announcement of strike action by members of the National Education Union in England and Wales, we would like to hear from teachers who are striking.

The NEU is striking for a fully funded, above-inflation pay rise after the government said last summer that most teachers would receive a pay rise of about 5%.

We would also like to hear from teachers in Scotland, where the Educational Institute of Scotland began 16 days of rolling strikes on Monday.

Are you striking, or planning to strike? Do you support the action? What are your reasons? Do you have any concerns?
