Not impressed with principals’ ‘wishy-washy’ stance

In response to a recent letter from principals and v-ps: You shouldn’t have bothered!

To the editor:

In response to the recent letter: Teacher Job Action: Principals, V-Ps Have Their Say: Schools Achieve New Normal Devoid of Interaction (May 8 Capital News).

You shouldn’t have bothered! We all know the problem—take a side.

Give us a solution.

The wishy-washy response offered is a cop-out and the “Teacher Job Action” title and the tone of the letter, suggests that your association (B.C. Principals’ and Vice-Principals’ Association) is in bed with the government.

A better title would read: “Teachers Driven to Job Action.”

If your association really wants to solve the problem, suggest to your employer the following: Appoint an arbitrator with no preconditions and whose decision is binding.”

Straight forward isn’t it?
