Replace striking teachers

To the Editor:

Isn’t the real question whether District 300 teachers are overworked and underpaid?

My son went to Jacobs three years ago. His history teacher announced his retirement. By the end of the month, District 300 had over 2,200 applicants.

Later that year, I was at one of my son’s Jacob’s team tennis matches.

I started a conversation with another parent. She said she was a substitute English teacher who was trying to go full time, but it didn’t look good because the only full-time District 300 opening already had 900 applicants.

Why not do what Caterpillar did and replace striking teachers?
