Looking back

70 years ago

Vancouver school teachers received a five per centum restoration of scheduled salaries, dating from the first day of April. This means that the cut in Vancouver teachers’ salaries has been lessened to 15 per cent. City teachers give much credit for what has been achieved in this respect to the untiring and persistent work of the Vancouver Teachers’ Council.

We certainly cannot agree that the students at Nanaimo High School, no matter what their complaints against the operation of the school, had any right whatsoever to "walk out on strike" as they did on April 18. It would appear that they were given too much consideration instead of an ultimatum to get back to their classrooms in very short order and at the same time face immediate suspension for their action. We agree that the principal and staff of the school must be in charge and their authority must be respected.

There is a sort of professional mystique that holds that the junior secondary years represent the most difficult and demanding period in the educational cycle, for all parties concerned. If this belief is shared, junior secondary schools operate under some sort of stigma or cloud. A demimonde inhabited by denizens who are neither elementary fish nor secondary fowl. This is where the discipline problems are most frequent, where the endocrine storms of adolescence rage most furiously, where the awesome transition is made from the hypothetically warm supportive environment of the child-centred elementary school to the hypothetically harsh impersonality of the subject-centred secondary system.
