A Langley mother plans to “walk-in” to her child’s school on Friday as teachers walk out as part of the union’s rotating strikes.
Brigitte MacNamara says “I’m already missing work, so I figured that what better place to be than in school where they normally would be?”
She says she’s been allowed to set up in the library and will take her kids through a normal school day — inviting other parents to bring their kids, too.
MacNamara says she’s not trying to disrespect teachers by crossing the picket line, but has been criticized on social media.
She adds, “I expect to be able to take my children to school on Friday and teach them without any repercussions on them or myself, physically or verbally.”
As for what she’ll do if teachers hold a full-scale walkout, MacNamara says she’ll wait and see.
