Peace and Global Educators BC is organizing a BIPOC (Black. Indigenous. People of Colour.) Educators conference on Saturday, October 5th in Burnaby.
A member of the BCTF Executive will be attending our General Meeting to provide an update on Provincial Bargaining.
As this school year comes to a close, we want to thank you for all you have done to support the students of Vancouver and public education in general. We know we have asked for your engagement on multiple issues throughout the year, and we are incredibly appreciative for the work you put in outside of the bookends of the school day. All the best for a rejuvenating summer from the In-House-Table-Officers at VESTA.
Teachers know that working conditions and learning conditions are one and the same.
According to Statistics Canada, BC’s per-student funding level is more than $1,800 below the national average. This funding gap is unacceptable in a province as prosperous as BC, where kids have suffered more than 15 years of cuts to services and increased class sizes.
