I can just imagine the reaction of that same parent, if their kid was allowed their choice and left on their own and something untoward happened to them, or they did something because someone "provoked" them...
So let's do some basic math.
1. Number of teachers before the walk-out: _______.
2. Number of teachers during walk-out: _______.
3. Number of teachers resuming classes after the walk-out: _______.
Add the results of 1, 2, and 3.
Divide by three.
This is the same number as the result for 1, 2, and 3, each.
Since that number is the same in all three scenarios, there could not have been a shortage of teaching staff during the walk-out if school was allowed to start, since the quantity needed to begin was the same as was present throughout all scenarios.
Where else would the teachers be, if not in their classrooms, unless they were all assigned to squeeze into that study hall?
Out with the kids?
What do teachers do
