I know this doesn't affect everyone. But I had posted about the strike to work here in BC back in September and it looks as though things are getting worse (not that I'm suprized because the liberal government here in BC is also going after health care workers and my MIL who is a CNA is also talking about striking) Today my older daughter's school is only open from 8:25am (start time is 8:30) until their 2:15 dismissal because of a province wide education rally.
I will also dispute the claim that is being made by BC's education minister in The Province (second link) that this strike is affecting all children. My daughter hasn't been directly affected by the strike to work because her teacher is doing her best and at my daughter's school (at least from what it looks like to me) she gets the full curiculum and there are extra activities during lunch. My daughter is even part of the art club and is doing much better at reading than most students in her class.
So opinions and thoughts. I'm with the teachers on this. I have the ability to stay home and teach my child if I have to.
