Wear some red and come out to make yourself heard. Encourage your colleagues to come to in a show of solidarity around the need for BC to increase public education funding, which is about $1,800 less per student than the Canadian national average.
In Vancouver schools this results in:
- Students getting less individual teacher time
- Underfunding of classroom materials and supplies
- Long waits for specialist teachers like resource teachers, teacher psychologists, teacher counsellors and speech language pathologists
Meeting the diverse needs of each student in a complex class takes time and resources. Call on your MLA and school trustees to increase per student education funding in BC to at least the national average.
BC students deserve better
