A longtime rural resident, I use my 60 plus years of life learning to opinionate here and elsewhere on the “interweb” on everything from politics to environmental issues. A believer in reasonable discourse rather than unhelpful attacks I try to give positive input to the blogesphere, so feel free to comment upon rural issues or anything else posted here. But don’t be surprised if you comments get zapped if you are not polite in your replys.

Teachers Job Description

I don’t often agree with Tim Hudak, In fact I cannot recall ever having done so before, but on this one he is correct. The only real surprise is that this is not a defined part of their job already, Interaction with the child that they are teaching parents should, indeed must, be a part of their job description as must reporting the progress of said student.
"Teaching is a profession. That's how teachers in the profession see their job and it should be that way in the definition in the Education Act. Let's actually have the definition of teacher reflect what teachers have always done, and will always want to do." Hudak said.

And This......

Tory education critic MPP Lisa MacLeod said Ontario must prevent union leaders from intimidating teachers with the threat of fines.
“It’s none of their business how our teaching professionals use their volunteer time. We will prohibit these bullying tactics in law,” she said in a statement.
