Veynor First School head teacher Sue Foster-Agg says stiking was a difficult decision

Today's public sector strike is expected to close as many as nine out of 10 schools in England and at least 80% elsewhere in the UK, with all three major teaching unions taking part in the action.

The Today programme's Mike Thomson reports from a school in Worcestershire, previously praised by David Cameron, where head teacher Sue Foster-Agg said that going on strike was one of the most difficult decisions she has had to make.
