International solidarity opportunity for members

 Permanent link   All Posts

The 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.

This 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.

For more information about the Tri-national Coalition, and to apply if you’d like to be considered as a delegate to the conference, please go to and follow the links to program highlights and the application form. Please apply by April 11, 2016.

The BCTF International Solidarity Program especially encourages early-career teachers (first five years) to apply.
