    This is misleading.
    The government sat down (or tried to) with the unions in February and laid out the financial reality of the funding of public ed for this round of contract negotiations. They...

    Sorry maybe that wasn't clear as I answered the same question twice. I am referring specifically to the large number of certified teachers that I personally know that are now homeschooling. They...

    And while I realize this may come as a bit of a shock to you, I am not alone in my "strong opinions". There is a recent poll that shows that:

    ~ Two-thirds of those surveyed believe that teachers’...

    Yes I have strong opinions but I haven't been disrespectful nor have I "bashed teachers". Disagreeing with their actions or positions is not bashing them and those sorts of statements are meant to...

    Teachers are required to supervise at lunch based on a certain ratio of teachers to students. Why not let one teacher hang out, outside the gym so someone can run floor hockey inside? If it's really...

    What? I missed it!
  7. If the teachers were allowed to supervise (not...

    If the teachers were allowed to supervise (not run, just be in the room) while the parents ran the program at lunch, the insurance wouldn't be an issue. But they won't. Why?
  8. It shouldn't be on the teacher's shoulders. But...

    It shouldn't be on the teacher's shoulders. But in the short term it is. It's just reality. See my post above about changing that.

    As a society we have increasing formed ourselves around the school=community model for young families. We've invested heavily in schools with stages and lighting and sound systems, in sports...

    which are expensive, which eat into family time, which are not available in all communities or accessible for all kids, which are not with their friends/community etc.

    I hear you. I access...

    And here's where the rubber meets the road for me. I think that 1) teachers are well compensated even without this years round of COL increases. They still have their sick days 10 of them should be...

    Coming back to add that the ones who need it most are probably the ones whose parents are least equipped for whatever reason to provide.

    LOL are you kidding me?
    Yes some parents can.
    But other parents are not in a financial situation nor have the time or community supports to do that. Nor is our society set up to just step in and...

    With the exception of the k-3 teachers who have to help children with basic body and health tasks, I'm not convinced that teachers are exposed to substantially more illness than others who come in...

    But they tried and were stopped only through legal means. And they did it in such as was as to cause as much disruption as possible. And they are still engaged in job action which is harming students.

    I believe that paying half our teacher $95K, the average teacher $83K a year (ministry of Ed figures), paying out retirement gratuties of $46K, and contributing to a gold plated benefits plan...

    He said
    “It will not be business as usual in our schools,” immediately following the OLRB ruling.
    If it's not business as usual, whose choice is that? Teachers have their contract and they can...

    I'm sorry Joan but I don't really know what to say. There have been an excess of teachers for years. And people still keep going into the profession. I am sure many of them are passionate, energetic...

    I think the union had a duty to open negotiations with the government representatives. EFTO and OSSTF barely warmed the seats before they decided they weren't interested in being "partners in...

    Teacher's college in Ontario is 1 year. If students go into teaching in the current enviroment and then are shocked by the job market they need to do better research.

    I answered the homeschooling...

    Most of the teachers have left the profession before they had kids, work part time in it, have one parent working as the teacher with the other parent at home. Teaching your own kids is vastly...

    Because they aren't cut out for the work, they don't love it, they are likely to burn out in the future. Don't you think committed teachers are the best kind to have in the system?

    I have emailed them and people for education trying to get a straight answer.
    They aren't interested in talking to anyone who isn't a teacher.

    And it's probably a good thing.
    Do you know the most represented profession among homeschooling parents is teachers?

    I'm quoting Ministry of Ed numbers and numbers in the Drummond Report. I would imagine they do a straight average. We have this many FTEs and this is the salary we pay to fund those FTEs and divide. ...
