”I’m a parent of two kids in the public school system. Teachers, you are essential.”

I’ve just finished a full ten-week term “home learning” in NSW with my two primary-aged school children.

Other than feeling like I have aged ten years in ten weeks, I think we all now fully appreciate the wonderful, difficult and beyond essential job that our teachers do.

Now more than ever, I think we can all agree that public school teachers deserve much more than thanks. They really, truly deserve a pay rise.
