CHARLESTON, W.Va.  — Senate President Mitch Carmichael, R-Jackson, said West Virginia teachers on strike have been “disrespectful” to the legislative process, and they should go back to work.

That came Monday after a small group of teachers in the Senate gallery loudly shamed Republican senators for shooting down a motion to fast-track a bill that would have dedicated a stream of revenue to fund the Public Employees Insurance Agency.

“It’s incredibly disappointing,” Carmichael said in an interview after union leaders announced the strike would continue for a fourth day. “You hear the people up in the galleries, being disrespectful to the process and so forth, and I think it’s being disrespectful to our students, to our parents — all those associated with providing an education to our students.”
