The first day of the SEA strike was a resounding success across Seattle. Not only did teachers and staff run spirited picket lines across the city, but many parents, students, and community members joined the lines as well. Below are some of the photos and videos sent to the Coalition for the Schools Seattle Deserves of the actions today.
