MEDFORD, Ore. — Medford teachers being on strike has caused mixed reactions from parents, students and community members alike.
Jerilyn Pool, a mother of two children in the Medford School District, says she supports the teachers 100%.
“It’s getting the community involved. Before we were just spectators, but now we have skin in the game because our kids are involved,” said.
She and her children came out on Thursday to support the Medford teachers in their own special way. Her goal was to bake 50 dozen cookies to then give out to teachers on the picket lines.
She and her kids were delivering cookies to teachers all day. She says her two children aren’t affecting by the strike just yet, for now they are just seeing it as a few days off.
