This is my third and I hope last column in a series on education. I believe that education is broken in the U. These conclusions are based on my experiences as a teacher, a parent, on the content of those two previous columns, one visit to OzzFest, and on my having this week read a couple books:. The first book was a pain to read as academic books often are.

When Education Minister George Abbott announced last week he would be legislating a collective agreement for the province's teachers, he said it was because of concern over harm to students and their parents caused by the teachers' job action. Released this weekend, the poll revealed 52 per cent of those polled were against government imposing a contract on teachers, increasing to 62 per cent if that contract were to include a wage freeze, weakened seniority provisions, and other concessions. A vote held on Saturday shows trustees from across the province are in favour of introducing a mediator to negotiations rather than legislating yet another contract and further fracturing government's relationship with teachers. Both Abbott and the BC Teachers' Federation BCTF expressed hope at the beginning of negotiations last year that the two parties could reach a settlement this time around. After all, they managed to do it in But critics have pointed out that's the only negotiated settlement the two have managed since provincial negotiations were introduced under the New Democratic Party government in As far as political science professor Marjorie Griffin Cohen is concerned, the government was never prepared to let teachers negotiate.

You know how passionate I am about teaching our younger generation that there other options besides college to make a living and change the world. I had no clue that showing my girls how to set up their own business would be so empowering for them. My original goal was to get them out of bed before 10 am on Saturday mornings. Well, long story short,business building worked to get them up and going AND they made 6 figures along the way.
