BC Teachers’ Federation is pleased to welcome a new Minister of Education and
appreciates the commitment of government having “a completely different and
fresh attitude towards public education.”
provides an opportunity for us to review and make recommendations on many of
the issues and policies important to the public education system and the
students and teachers who make up that system.
fresh orientation to working with teachers and their BCTF opens the door for
resolving many issues, some that have been awaiting action for a considerable
time. We appreciate that the new Minister has substantial background in the
issues facing public education and will be able to act quickly. To facilitate
this, we offer this brief to bring together in one place many of the BCTF
concerns and proposals that require some action.
look forward to these issues on the agenda of meetings with the Minister and
other Ministry education officials.
