Medford, Ore. -- Since news broke that the Medford teachers voted to strike, the community has been sounding off.
NBC 5 News received comments both on Facebook and KOBI5.com, over the past 24 hours.
Most comments support the teachers.
Bill Lewis writes on Facebook, "Good for them. Teachers are molding our future leaders. They deserve everything and more. Happy teachers = happy classes = optimal learning environment. It costs a teacher a lot of money just to be a teacher."
But not everyone agrees.
Ken Beck wrote on our website, "Greedy! Get back to work. Be thankful you have a job to go to."
Teachers were at school on Monday.
Several students at North Medford High School say they'll support their teachers and back them up on the picket lines.
"It kind of blows that the teachers are going on strike, because a lot more teachers aren't in school and not getting paid like they should, so they can do their job," said student Keisha Hartman.
"The point of a strike is for them to shut down a business. But unfortunately they can't shut down a business because it's a school and then I don't get taught," said Dean Bottorff.
"They really just have to figure out a way to walk the fine line of a protest and get what they want but at the same time they need to keep our youth educated."
It's still unknown when exactly teachers will go on strike.
They will need to give at least 10 days notice before they do so.
