Are Ontario teachers really going to Strike?

Recommended Posts

Correct me if I'm wrong but the more degrees the teacher has, the more money they can make, right? Also, if teachers were fighting for the kids and not the money, I think more people would understand a strike

That is true, topaz. Teachers who obtain a masters degree, at say, the age of 50, will earn on average an extra 10K/year. They won't be a better teacher though. A masters degree also leads to a higher pension. Teachers with masters degrees are not identified in the school system, so parents don't really know who should be expected to deliver "top quality" education. But like I said in a status update: celebrating pink shirt day and making posters is beginning to take precedence over math and language skills.

Elementary Teachers doing a Work to Rule on Monday.

BUNCHA SCUMBAGS!

That's kind of extreme, given that they have chosen an action that won't inconvenience parents at all.

HOW DARE THEY CONTINUE TO RUN FIELD TRIPS! ;)

All they really did is kill standardized testing and avoid writing administrator mandated gibberish comments that most parents can't understand anyways.

Under the work-to-rule campaign, teachers will:

  • Not undertake any activities related to EQAO including field testing, marking, administrative duties or test preparation.
  • Not prepare report card comments
  • Not attend staff, divisional or grade team meetings.

For now, they said they'd escalate it.

Nice opinion of parents not being able to understand evaluations though. Shocking that teachers get a bad rap.

You misread the comment. It was meant as an insult against administration as teacher's aren't permitted to say what is most useful to parents.

They must use eduspeak that is specifically meant to dance around issues so that fewer parents call back to admin to get problems solved.
