We spoke to parent of two, Marnie Wilton about the rapidly growing community support for the teacher’s strike. She’s an admin of the Facebook group “I back the teachers”, which has grown in membership to more than 8000 in less than two weeks. We discussed the necessity of there being a space for non-teachers to show their support for the cause, and that the movement has significant support from the community. We began by asking Marnie what the purpose of the group is and why she got involved.
