and the right for teachers to strike and raise issues of class size and composition in collective bargaining in this blog post. Meanwhile, BC high school students are walking out Friday
in support of the teachers and the concerns they raise about BC's public school system.
BC teachers have been in a prolonged dispute with the provincial government, including several lawsuits over what can be considered at the bargaining table.
I especially appreciate the teacher's post for the description of how small bureaucratic changes (i.e. how class sizes are calculated) result in major changes for students and teachers-- especially students with learning support needs. This reflects what I see as a parent, and is why I'm a parent who supports the strike.
