Teacher ‘insulted’

The Editor,

Re. “B.C. government will appeal teacher ruling” (The Tri-City News, Feb. 5).

I continue to be insulted by the arrogance of the Ministry of Education and the current provincial government.

I have been a teacher since 1980, keeping informed and involved in the many years of negotiations with various governments. But these past 12-plus years have been mostly unpleasant ones to be a teacher due to the disrespect show us by the BC Liberal government, which greatly influences public opinion. I am tired of being accused of not standing up for my students, which I do every day.
