This is day two of the rotating strikes by the B-C Teachers Federation.
About a dozen teachers are on the early picketing shift today at the Langley Fine Arts School, including Carol Mason.
She teaches Grade 3 and says it was awful to see kids crying yesterday that today’s classes and performances would be cancelled.
Mason says she hopes this week’s rotating one-day strikes around the province will help get some kind of movement at the bargaining table with the government.
She remembers a time in past negotiations in fact. when wage demands were dropped to focus on class size and composition and she’s saying hopefully they get some kind of movement and that might need to happen.
BCTF President Jim Iker is set to speak at the school later on this morning.
