A Photo a Day – June 4, 2014 – Day 110
Over the years British Columbia has really dealt with a series of problems in regards to the teachers union and the education board. The provincial education board continues to cut teacher wages while the teachers strike in protest to the increasing class sizes and decrease in pay. Today the students decided to walkout of school to gain more attention and for people to notice that their education was at stake because of the strikes occurring across the province. This being said, do the students realize that the teachers are striking BECAUSE of them? All things they do are for the students. The teachers are being disrespected and need to stand up for themselves in a way that will get attention and striking seems like the only way. I hope the students soon learn this and realize that the strike is important for their education to get better throughout the years.
