I didn't strike today as my union ( NASUWT) didn't give us the opportunity to vote on this issue - my experience of union people is they seem to cosy up to our employers on a regular basis. Only about 6 out of 150 teachers in my school took action - this is because the members of the NUT tend to be based in Primary schools and in London.
Both my kids were not in school today -quite difficult for us as my husband and I both were.
I am lucky as I am middle aged ,and have a house, car and all those things that I aspired to as a younger me. I get paid a reasonable amount for what I do, but I feel very sorry for young teachers who cannot afford mortgages without taking on second jobs,( I know plenty who work in pubs for instance) who definately can't afford to live down south ( as if you'd want to) and who are drowning in all the vast amount of paperwork that comes with the job nowadays.
Teaching is very rewarding, but also incrediably frustrating - not only badly behaved kids, but also badly behaved parents and pressure to always improve on last year's grades. There is definately an argument to allow people who do such a responsible job a realistic wage!
Sorry for a bit of an epic rant - I've been listening to politicans and other people who think they know about education on the radio -perhaps if they were in a classroom day on day in front of 30 kids, they might react differently!!!!!! :x

It was not just the teachers on strike today, they seem to have taken the headlines.

It it a difficult decision to strike and lose a day's pay. Of course the strike is more effective if fully supported.

MerseyBeatle, as you haven't said that you are a teacher yourself, and therefore can't really conceive of what goes on in reality in that job, then you really are talking bollocks!
Of course, maybe you could be a teacher... if only you had the brains.
You might be going out with a teacher now, but maybe not for long with such a disrespectful attitude towards her profession!
