I received an automated phone message this morning from my daughter's school district (my daughter picked up the phone so I didn't hear the entire message) detailing the new things teachers wouldn't do. Shortly after that I had a call from one of my husband's cousins whose children attend school in a town to the North of us. She told me that bus service was canceled for anyone living 4Km or less from the school and that outdoor recess was canceled. There's supposed to be a long list of things teachers are refusing to do now because of the strike in BC (including report cards and parent teacher meetings) but I can't find it right now.
I managed to find a link about the Kelowna schools (my district) on CBC.ca http://www.cbc.ca/news/canada/british-co...
I understand that the teachers are upset about recent budget cuts. But to cancel recess for students because you don't feel it's what your paid for is selfish in my opinion. Don't punish children for what the government is doing to you. I guess I should say I'm glad it'll be in the upper 20's the rest of the week, but it's still crappy.
