Teacher’s strikes. In 12 years of public schooling in PA, I went through 3 strikes, including one my senior year of high school. In that case, we walked out the day before and marched on the school district building calling for the teachers’ demands to be met. The day after the strike began, i was on an airplane to West Palm Beach to visit the grandparents for a week. (Mom’s ides, not mine.)
Ah, to be young and idealistic.
