Over 40 Doncaster schools will be hit by strike action by teachers tomorrow forcing parents to find childcare or take time off work.
The one-day walkout is a protest over changes to pay, pensions and the Government’s approach to education.
Around 30 schools and academies in the borough will be fully closed all day and a further 13 have confirmed partial closures.
The Government has condemned the strike action but teaching union leaders said school staff are angry at the way the profession is being treated by Education Secretary Michael Gove.
Nick Raine, National Union of Teachers regional officer for Yorkshire, said: “We are taking strike action because Michael Gove is refusing to meet or negotiate with us.
“Free schools and academies are causing chaos.
“We have got a record number of unqualified people in classrooms and education is being deregulated.
But the Government won’t consult with teachers, their representatives or anyone to do with education.”
A Department for Education spokesman said: “All strikes will do is disrupt parents’ lives, hold back children’s education and damage the reputation of the profession.”
