Pupils will be the first victims in dispute
THE ASTI dispute has been rumbling along since October 2 without attracting too much attention because it hasn't had any direct impact on students or parents – yet.
Although they voted for industrial action, it is probably fair to say that there is no appetite among ASTI members to disrupt their students' education.
They also know that there is little, if any, public sympathy for their action. Still, they voted for it and have to see it through.
