Planning For A Teachers’ Strike

There’s a teachers’ strike in NSW today, which inevitably leads to grumbles from parents who face last-minute changes to their day-to-day school drop-off and child-minding arrangements. What are your coping strategies when that happens?

Not everyone hates strikes, of course. Lots of kids are happy to have the day off, and for commuters, trains and buses become a lot less crowded. But for parents, the normal workday routine gets disrupted. While most schools end up with a skeleton staff, not all parents are happy to send their kids in for an entirely unstructured day.

Anyway, I’m wondering: what tactics do Lifehacker readers use to deal with unexpected school strikes? Share your coping strategies and thoughts in the comments.
