The president of a B-C parents’ organization says parents may need to take action if the teachers and government don’t reach a deal soon.
Speaking at a meeting of the B-C Confederation of Parent Advisory Councils, president Terry Berting says he appreciates the work at the bargaining table.
But he says it’s getting embarassing and parents are considering what action they can take.
He says, “As an organization, BCCPAC has been fairly quiet and patient, but it’s wearing thin.”
Berting calls for more funding.
Education Minister Peter Fassbender responded with a familiar line, “I think the challenge on funding is we need a balanced budget.”
Berting’s group is meeting this weekend to discuss options.
