"You can't set a house on fire, call 911 and claim to be a hero".

One Republican lawmaker upset about the strike proposed amendments to make it illegal for teachers to espouse political beliefs at work, to require the attorney general to investigate schools that allow political activity and to bar schools from closing during a walkout.

"I thought I was on summer vacation", the eighth-grader said.

Our educators, staff, and administration are eager and excited to welcome students back to school tomorrow! Epstein said the bill could help prevent suicide and bullying and improve academic performance.
