Thank you for the editorial by Tom Fletcher, bringing awareness to the populace about where our teachers’ interests lie.
It is shameful that the B.C. Court of Appeal feels that the schoolroom is an appropriate setting for teachers to set out their propaganda. It is bad enough that they parade in front of the schools when they are on strike, indicating to the children that they are not interested in teaching, just having more money and benefits.
What next? Are we going to have every union coming into the classrooms?
When it comes to funding, perhaps one should check out the BCTF expenditures and realize that the majority of the expenses go to the teachers’ salaries. Interesting.
