My son has been home for the better part of 4 months given the teachers strike that began in the later part of last school year. At that time they were on rotation strike days and even included a student lead walkout. I try not to take sides in disputes like these as I understand each opposing arguments. Today, the teachers will vote on a settlement reached this week. I hope the vote passes so we can get our kids back in the classroom. The BCTF posted this tweet yesterday:

I however, don’t believe the current education system is working. Ron Dale, a retired teacher wrote a great letter to the editor that was published in the Times Colonist and appeared in our local paper the Leader. Read a copy of the letter below.
