They rocked out, but will they walk out?

Hayward teachers held a rally on Tuesday over failed contract negotiations. Footage of the demonstration, which started at Birchfield Park and ended at the district offices, features The Angry, Tired Teachers, a band made up of Hayward High School educators. Amazingly (or maybe not so amazingly, these days), the videos have found their way to YouTube.

Also, our very own Jane Tyska can be seen snapping photos to a remake of the Stones’ classic “Satisfaction” towards the end of the video above.


  • The Hayward videos are a big hit down here in Yucaipa. We’re fighting a similar battle with our district. We’re behind you 100%

  • Supportive L.E. Parents

    This is for all the instructors of the HUSD: We are parents of children who attend L.E.
    school & we support you! Not just the teachers we know & respect on a personal basis,
    but also those around the district who are fighting not only for what you want, but for
    what you outright DESERVE!! I hope the paper-pushers in the district office realize that
    without the instructors, we don’t have schools. I hope they realize that in the event of a
    strike, I, as well as many other parents districtwide, will keep our children home.
    Keep the good work!!!
