Bass’s column on teachers, IB program speaks the truth
Re: Dale Bass’s column of Jan. 19 (‘A shortsighted teachers’ union decision that will only hurt students’) regarding the fate of the proposed International Baccalaureate program at NorKam secondary:
This was a great column and I enjoy reading Bass’s columns every week.
I graduated from Nor Kam secondary in 1970 and would be very disappointed if they would have to close the school because of narrow-minded teachers who are always telling us they are are doing it for the children’s education.
It’s about time they tell the public what they really want — more money.
It seems to me they are paid well enough for working roughly 180 days a year and considering there are two teachers in a lot of households.
I was told about 94 per cent of the School District 73 budget goes to teacher salaries.
