Students and parents asked school district officials of Reynolds in Ohio to make more in order to end teachers’ strike.The protests took place in order to show their indignation for the lack of respect towards the hard work and efforts of teachers.

In this particular area of the district there is no limit on the number of students in a class and teachers are increasingly forced to do more with less .

Teachers are forced to seek for better opportunities elsewhere. He says clearly that those who are for the students can not be against the teachers.
