Teachers’ strike ‘nerve-wracking’

I have just heard the news that the B.C. Teachers’ Federation will be going on strike.

This is nerve-wracking for me. My academics are currently at risk and teachers are also putting the Grade 12 students at risk, because they are about to finish their last year and they need the grades to get into a good college or university. The strike is also putting my job at the school cafeteria at risk, which I get paid for.

I don’t think it’s fair to the parents to allow their kids to be out of school for three days. It is said that parents are the first educators in a child’s life, but teachers should be academic role models and good employees.

The teachers are not even worried about their jobs. They are acting as if there is nothing to worry about. The teachers should learn to compromise with the government, because they are not always going to get their way.
