We know someone that has got set up to home school her two boys, and may keep them out even after this whole thing. (She is pissed right off)

I know that Kristina is starting to get a bit tired of our little one... she needs a break.

Get back to school!

I'm sure glad i'm not in school any more, i would be pretty annoyed.especially in grade twelve. the teachers just gotta wait there turn like everybody else. first the econemy goes up THEN wages go up. there expecting a raise just because there is a small surplus, well sorry this province has some catchin up to do, ur not starving to death, how many teachers still drive to the picket line everyday. if they really need money that bad s=leave the SUV at home and take the fuken bus. go back to work ur raise will come.

I'm not a teacher, but my sister in law is and this is what she's told me. There is a law (of sorts) that requires that the teachers' contract be re-negotiated every three years. That was two years ago and the government has just passed that bullshit law to push the contract through another year. They won't even talk to the union, let alone re-negotiate. That's crap, in my opinion. My sister in law did her practicum at a school last year where she had 36 kids in her classroom; there weren't enough desks so one child actually sat on hers. This same class only had 10 history textbooks for the whole class...books that were 10 years old even. There are currently no caps on class sizes and the kids are suffering because of it. As far as the wage increase is concerned, their shooting high with 15% expecting much less. I realise this strike is hurting alot of people; students, families that can't afford daycare, etc, and I can't say I definately agree with the strike because of that, but something has to change...the education system is going down the shitter. Hope this sheds some light.

Shoot, not trying to be a jackass here [:I]. I just think alot of people (as in the general population, not you guys) are making judgements based on bias information, myself included; just passing on what I've learnt. I guess I should have mentioned that I am personally affected by the strike, I'm just finishing up a special education teachers assistant program(working with the special needs kids in the classroom) and I was suppose to start my practicum this week; without my practicum I don't graduate, therefore, don't work. I promise, the next time I post something, it will be a lot less serious.

Getting pretty sick and tired of BCTF (and others) stating as fact that 'our children are suffering', blah blah.

I have 2 kids in the education system and yes they have large classes, yes they share textbooks and yes they share desks but NO, they are absolutely not freakin suffering. The kids in asia who run the risk of terrorists taking over their school and killing them are suffering. the kids in literally dirt poor african countries who have NO textbooks and NO desks and probably no teachers and no breakfast are suffering.

The kids in BC may not have the optimal learning conditions but by no means are they suffering. Kids who want to learn are learning. Kids who don't want to learn but have involved parents are learning.
Now that it's over the BCTF still has to deal with the courts today. I sure hope the courts don't shrug it off now that it's settled.

I agree with you 100%; I've been to Africa. Comparatively speaking, we're ridiculously fortunate here. It's just that the issue here is between what it is and what it could be. Thanks for your perspective, though, you're completely right.

FYI, just spoke to the principal at my practicum school; the teachers are voting this weekend, school will most likely be back monday.

well said FuzzyDog, guess that's part of the reason why i don't live in Africa. I live in Canada. My kids go to school in Canada. Canada is NOT a 3rd world country. So yes, I do complain that it is affecting my kids. There daily routine, suffering is just a wrong choice of word, More like Loosing Out on education......the way they know life, not from any other perspective.

I know that the teacher that my eldest has, probably will be sending an Extreme amount of Homework home to catch up on. Which in turn is not fair on the younger kids.


For some, it's a "Hassle" to have them not in school, and for most, expensive.
