CFN – Are you tired of children being used as pawns in the Teacher/Ontario Government scrap over Bill 115? I just viewed this commercial and am totally disgusted by the OSSTF.
There’s only one thing standing between public high school students and their extra curricular activities.
It’s not about taking sides in this squabble. It’s despicable to actually see a video clearly stating the obvious, that the Teacher’s Union are holding up our children, their Proms, school trips, and events hostage. That if they don’t get their way they will behave in the manner that some of their students end up in detention for.
The Teacher’s union chose in the last Provincial election who to support, and with no better option this is where it’s descended to.
Frankly as much as I feel some of the facets of 115 are unfair to teachers I think they should all get a nice big pay cut after watching this commercial so we can fund people to help with extra curricular activities. School is a few scant years of people’s life. It’s their foundation of who they become.
Are these the lessons we want our children learning from? Is this the behavior pattern we want our children to take into their lives as adults and parents themselves?
There’s only so much honey in the honey pot and maybe it’s time we all wake up and hold our governments accountable for how they spread it and where?
Frankly the Ontario Secondary School Teacher’s Federation really blew it with this ad in this scribblers opinion. What’s yours?
