Tri-national Coalition in Defense of Public Education is holding its 12th
conference in Vancouver in mid-May. The BCTF has been involved since the
coalition was created in 1994.
conference is an opportunity for interested members to learn about issues that
are challenging public education on an international level (the neo-liberal
agenda, privatization, “austerity”, etc.), and get involved in grassroots solidarity
activities to counteract those challenges. There will be participants from BC,
the rest of Canada, the US, Mexico, and Puerto Rico.
