Teachers’ conundrum

Nanaimo – One big notation of the rhetoric of the Union Spokesman is the continual bleating about illegally removing control of class size and composition from the workers control. This unbelievably stupid situation was established by another political entity -to win the votes of the teachers’ union -that gave control of the entire operation to the workers.

Fortunately -corrected ! Can one imagine a factory owner giving complete control to the floor workers -who know which widget to tighten but no management knowledge. No responsible operator would give way to such control ! But this is what the teachers Union demands.

If that situation existed -teachers could limit the number of student in each class -with no minimum limitation, then demand that their employers (the beleaguered taxpayer) hire more teachers -with high pay, benefits and -other perks. Then supply more classrooms -again -with no limitations -at an unsustainable cost! So -money is not a teacher’s matter ? By a coincidence -more teachers would enlarge and strengthen the control of by the Union! Thus -more pressures on teacher to toe the Union mandate ! D. F. Connors Nanaimo
