Wisconsin Doctors Supporting Teachers; Telling Them: Call In Sick
Some Wisconsin doctors are supporting the teachers’ efforts to retain their rights, are advising them to call in sick, and saying they will write sick notes.
The Madison School District has said teachers who call in sick to protest won’t be paid, but a group of licensed Wisconsin doctors came to the capitol today saying they would write a physician’s note for anyone who asked.
Dr. Kathy Oriel told ABC affiliate WKOW-TV in Madison that the doctors realize they could get in trouble for their offer.
“We think its worth the risk,” she said. “Teachers have no choice.”
The doctors say they are doing this on their own, not as part of any organized group.Click here for reuse options!
