As South Burlington students and teachers spent a third day out of the classroom Thursday, Gov. Peter Shumlin’s patience with the walkout was thin.
He says the strike harms all the wrong people.
“When you see what's going on in a community like South Burlington, the people that get hurt are the kids, the moms and the dads who suddenly have no place for their kids to go during the day," he says.
Instead, Shumlin wants to outlaw teacher strikes in favor of mandatory, binding arbitration.
