Support from boards and administrators
Forty school boards wrote to the government during the political protest requesting the government to either negotiate with teachers or repeal Bill 12. Some even called on the government to do away with BCPSEA as it has never been able to negotiate an agreement.
Three groups of administrators called on the government to negotiate with teachers. Administrators in Coquitlam, Richmond, and Maple Ridge all took a stand in support of public education.
