BC Government Education Funding

Hi All,  

I am writing about the present BC government and their plans to make severe cuts to Education Funding.  

In 2002 the liberal government stripped out teaching contract by removing class size and class composition from our collective agreement.  At this time there were severe cuts to Support Teachers, such as Special Needs Teachers and Teacher Librarians. There were also increases in class sizes. This was a very sad time for Education in the province of BC.  

The British Columbia Teachers’ Federation worked very hard and in 2017 there was a Supreme Court Ruling, which restored our Collective Bargaining Rights.  Many new teachers were hired, class sizes were reduced to a manageable level, Support Teachers, such as Teacher Librarians and Special Learning Needs Teachers, had time increases, and new Teachers were hired. 

Our current BC government is planing to make severe cuts again to Education and delete all of the restored language on Class Composition.  We need to pressure the government to keep the present funding for education intact and to uphold the Supreme Court Ruling that was made in 2017. 

Thanks for taking the time to read this email and respond to our BC Government. 

Best Regards 

Ken Redman
