Some PG teachers stage 'sick out'
Over a thousand teachers in Prince George's County Public Schools missed class on Monday, with some purposely calling out sick to protest problems in the school system, including unauthorized raises for employees in the District's central office. “Just hearing about the secret raises, that’s a real slap in the face to teachers,” said teacher Samantha Bardoe. While the teachers' union told members not to call out sick, the Prince George’s County Educators’ Association did vote on a “Work to Rule” Action for two weeks, which means teachers should not do anything beyond bare minimum duties.
