BCTF day at SFU
Simon Fraser University education faculty and students hosted a BCTF Day on Tuesday, December 6. BCTF President Jinny Sims was the keynote speaker and provided background and a summary of our job action and thanked them for their support. Sims received a standing ovation from the 400 education students.
Dean of Education Paul Shaker thanked Sims and pointed out to the students the importance of standing up for public education. Shaker also noted that teachers need a social-justice union like the BCTF to help them defend public education as they will be facing powerful and well-financed opponents.
Education students had the opportunity to attend BCTF workshops for the day.
