The West Virginia teachers’ strike now entering its second week appears to be inspiring the nation. It looks now like the teachers’ militancy to strike has inspired many of their students as well as teachers in other states.

How far the teachers’ strike spreads at this point is unclear.

On Saturday, teachers in Oklahoma began holding meetings to discuss a strike and quickly garnered 40,000 fans on their Facebook page when they announced their plans for a work stoppage.
