Media biased against teachers

Once again I am angry and disappointed, though not surprised by the bias and slant presented in the press

Once again I am angry and disappointed, though not surprised by the bias and slant presented in the press, particularly regarding the teacher’s situation with the government.

In recent articles about the legislation ending teachers’ strike, it mentions the cooling off period and the existing contract being extended, which is misleading to say the least.

Nowhere does it state that the existing contract has been drastically stripped and modified. British Columbians need to be aware of what is happening as there is a bigger picture here than “teachers versus government.”

Democratic process is at stake and the agenda is clear. It’s basic political science — a dumbed-down population doesn’t ask questions.

The solution is simple: quit funding private education and start funding public education.
