Debate on teacher situation...

I've been having a very interesting time debating on Sean Holman's Public Eye site about the teacher's situation. Come and weigh in - hopefully with enough discussion, we'll start to see what the best solution might be!

Today on CKNW-radio, a teacher claimed teachers get no respect. Part of the reason for this, is the late 1960's liberal ideals pushed into Canadian society against authority./ Teacher should not strike thus breaking the law. Sets a bad excample to students, suggesting to get want one wants if need be break the law. Again a liberal concept base me, me, and me first and formost. BCTF union leader, excample of teacher rights to strike and break the law compares with the south U.S. African civil rights is no doubt complete nonsense. / Teachers get your union back to the barging table and inform the BCTF to cooperate reasonbally rather than being totally against the B.C. provincial liberal government because this government slants right and the BCTF is politically right phobic.

I can't speak for BC, but I know that teachers on the east coast probably do have some legitimate complaints in at least one area -- there is no means of controlling disruptive students any more. Every snot-nosed disruptive brat out there knows more of "their rights
than Peter Hogg. The government and the school boards are pushovers on disciplinary matters.

As for the rest, meh, the BC teachers seem to be complaining about not much.

Yeah, Larry baby, Yeah.. those "1960's liberal ideals" like equality (civil rights movement, quiet revolution), liberty (the woman's liberation movement) and all the rest of that craaazzzy 60's stuff is not only nonsense as a analogy for the teachers, it was nonsense at the time. Lets face it, MLK WAS a lawbreaker. Any law, no matter how onerous, is to be followed because it is a LAW, created by our betters for our protection.

Erin, Erin, Erin. If you and your sycophants want to really understand just how hypocritical the BC Liberals are on this dispute read MY column in 24 hours newspaper today - Tuesday - and you'll no doubt be appalled at your party's disrespect for the law - the law they themselves passed in 2001.

anonymous, did you know equal-rights and freedoms don't often even coinside. Also it's rights but not equal rights. Excample:A person owns a small printing company, another person wants papers printed to hand out to the general public. Printer says no because subject matter is against his personal views. Due to equal rights law enactments, the courts forces private printer to print the papers. Printer loses his freedom to run his own printer company his way, the other gets the so called equal rights. Civil black U.S. rights came from people power and their base freedom from a Republican type of president. [Try thinking for yourself rather than politically left-liberal trained]. Feminists movement, many of the ruling feminists behind the main public scenes are more wanting n attempting lesbianism promotion. Check feminists book sections and college's n university's women programs again their feminists sections. Many radical feminists are officers of the left-state because the general public don't often agree with their radical ideology they thus force it upon society by way of the left-state. Western society eventually landed more outside the home employment for women due to society change's rather than feminism . The work labour force changed to machine and teck with more social human to human interactions after WW2. Aonymous,you posted here the good sounding left-liberal ideology but not reality.
