Just Wrong

“Putting Students First” doesn’t mean putting teachers last | Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives:

One can’t hire a contractor, spend the money on something else, and then say, “Sorry, I can’t pay for that new kitchen.”

A teachers position is NOTHING like a contractor so this argument just isn’t valid.

Teachers can’t negotiate salaries, raises, or bonuses like many in the private sector can: these changes are non-negotiable.

You can’t have it both ways. Union negotiated contracts or do it yourself.

We teachers earned our banked sick days in the past through hard work. They are not a “frill” to be retroactively withdrawn. 

But they are SICK DAYS, If you’re not sick you don’t use them. Plus, you weren’t sick, you should be happy! Banking WAS a nice perk but I don’t get to bank my car insurance if I don’t get in an accident!

 

Still think the public education is broken, almost beyond repair. Starting to think about setting aside money now for my future children’s private education.

    I share your opinions on this. I worry about the state of the education system and the reluctance on both sides to see the actual problems for what they are.
