A BC teacher tells it like it is.

A lengthy post, straight from the heart. It makes you wonder why anybody chooses to go into teaching anymore.

And it makes me thankful that so many do.

It’s interesting to get some insight into what is going on in BC. Unfortunately, I perceive many of these very same problems here in Quebec.

Until we start listening to the teachers, we won’t understand. Until we start valuing the teaching profession, we won’t even begin to fix it. And only when education is recognized as an investment in the core of our economic future, we won’t see significant change.

Teachers matter. And when they have to cry out the way this one in BC is doing, well, we are failing.

Truly,

Steve
