It seems that, in the solution of the problem between the BCTF and our government, an important point is being overlooked. The BCTF is a union of educators as the Canadian Medical Assocition is a union of healers and the Law Association is a union of defenders of our rights. The unions to which the government refers to as comparable are unions working to protect and help the workers in their jobs such as labour, longshoremen and others.
Teachers are working for the education of all of us and everyone in all varieties of jobs and professions. They are responsible for the ministers, doctors, nurses, lawyers and the generations of all workers in the present and future. Everyone needs an education in the formative years of life to prepare them and our country for the future. Therefore, surely we should recognize the value of education and workable class sizes and put it above budget restrictions and our tax dollar and put the emphasis where it will benefit everyone forever,
According to the Canadian Charter of Rights â€œEvery child deserves educationâ€ and if this is followed doesnâ€™t it show the value of the teachers in our system and put them in a separate category from other professions or jobs?
