South Butler teachers have started to picket as of 11:am (they slept in this morning)

Teachers started picketing about 11:15 a.m. on Thursday. Several teachers could be seen walking around the campus holding signs that read “We Teach, We Care, Be Fair” and “Fair Contract Now.”

This marks the fifth teachers strike in South Butler in the past 40 years. It’s unclear at this point how long the strike will last. Union rep Brooke Witt said the Pennsylvania Department of Education was notified of the strike Thursday morning.

If a second strike threatens the school’s ability to complete 180 days of school by June 30, the Pennsylvania Secretary of Education can intervene by asking a court to prohibit the strike.

According to state law, teachers must return to school after they strike if students won’t be able to get 180 days of school in without the district extending the school calendar beyond June 15th

The teachers have been working under terms of an expired contract for nearly four years.

    • That is the smartest thing you’ve ever said beezle cum dump. How is 50-70k and Summers off not fair. They teach useless information from textbooks they know dick shit about and maybe if the school offered financial classes they could manage their checks better and spend up to their necks and think that crying is the way to make more money. Fuck these libtards replace em w scabs.

  2. Let’s not give swingers a bad rap. A swinger marriage is not more or less happy than a traditional marriage. I was in the lifestyle for several years with my ex. We became roommates with benefits, and wanted to spice things up. One night I was nailing a guy’s wife while he was nailing mine, and I realized when I looked over and watched that the reason I felt no jealousy or bad feelings was because I didn’t love my wife like I did when I married her. My feelings now were more platonic and due to her birthing our kids, but I wasn’t in love with her anymore. We had a mortgage, kids, debt, car payments, and shared friends and family, so divorcing was not an option I was interested in. Swinging was a way to put up with the marriage and one another. We could endure the marriage when we knew we had sex with strangers to look forward to every few weeks. I see this situation play out often in the lifestyle.

    The swinger party line is swingers have stronger, better, more blissful marriages than vanillas (monogamous couples), but they have to say that otherwise the lifestyle looks less intriguing and exciting. Swingers will tell you they have research to back that up, but the research is severely skewed. The researchers go to swing forums, clubs, and other swing positive areas to ask questions. Therefore, the questions are answered mostly by current, active, happy swingers. The people swinging did not work out for, or whose marriages ended due to swinging, no longer frequent swinger spots, thus the data is skewed in favor of swinging being positive and favorable to a marriage. The vast majority of swingers are not on their first marriage. Many have been married 2+ times before. It isn’t unheard of to find couples who divorced to marry a swing partner.

    I stayed married until I ran into a friend from college. Now I’m happily married to a wonderful woman, and I would not share her with another man for anything in the world. She is my queen and I adore her.
    Swingers are merely trying to stay married in a difficult or unhappy situation; give them a break.
