Victorian teachers threatening strike action over pay rise push

Sky News host Chris Kenny says teachers are threatening strike action over a pay rise in Victoria.

"Read the room," Mr Kenny said.

"So many parents are so stressed about kids not being able to go to school, and it’s not just about parents finding the pressure of home schooling too much – they understand that their kids are missing out on important education and development.

"I just thought teachers in all the states would need to understand they need to get that back operating properly before they start putting out their hands for significant pay rises."

Mr Kenny spoke with ACU Senior Research Fellow Dr Kevin Donnelly about the issue.
