SOME schools across Worcestershire will be closed or partially closed today because of strike action.
Teachers belonging to the National Union of Teachers (NUT) will walk out in a row over working conditions, pay and pensions.
The NUT has said teachers are demoralised by proposed changes to their working conditions and warns of future staff shortages because so many are leaving the profession.
