I haven’t written in recently and really hadn’t planned to.
The article that made me dust off my soap box is dated April 30, “We are lucky to be working.”
It states the average school teacher in B.C. makes $89,000 a year.
Sure would like to know where this piece of misinformation originated.
In this district, a teacher with a Masters or PhD at maximum experience doesn’t get that much.
Do you have any stats on the average pay for plumbers, electricians, mechanics, lawyers or politicians?
A friend once gave me advice on averages, he said, “if you put one foot in boiling water and the other in ice water the average is just fine but how are your feet?”
Right now our provincial government is telling people they can’t afford to fund the public education system while funding independent schools.
Once upon a time independent schools were funded privately.
Surely the teachers can’t be held responsible for the closing of a Staples store?
Canadians used to have better manners than this.
