Teaching a tough job

The classes are too large. Kids deserve better. Teachers I applaud you!

Take your three kids (or nieces, nephews, grandkids) and times that by 10 and you have the class size of an average classroom in B.C. At least one of those kids is being bullied, probably two or more are struggling with English as a second language, three is the allowable ‘numbered’ kids, four are not at grade level and should be ‘numbered’ and five are really eager learners. Throw in a couple that have A: come to school sick; B: a few more that haven’t had enough sleep or any breakfast; and C: maybe some with only a struggling and or depressed parent. This is why the teachers are on strike.
