Here’s the scoop from the Rocky Mountain News:

Not a single classroom teacher showed up for work at a northwest Denver school on Tuesday, an apparent “sickout” staged by teachers upset over stalled contract talks.

All 16 classroom teachers plus the music teacher and a librarian called in sick, forcing Debra Lucero Kraft, principal of Academia Ana Marie Sandoval, to scramble to cover classes at the bilingual Montessori elementary school.

Kraft sums up my feelings nicely:  “I’m not sure if leaving your students without a teacher is a way to address contract negotiations.”  Ya think?
