A new survey suggests public opinion remains split on the teachers’ dispute.
In a poll conducted by Insights West and commissioned by the BC Federation of Labour, 52 per cent of people surveyed support teachers in the contract dispute, although that number jumps to 60 per cent among parents.
37 per cent said they support the government and 11 per cent are not sure.
“What was quite striking looking back at some of the surveys that we’ve done before is the fact that there are more parents of kids in the school system who is siding with B.C. teachers.”
Pollster Mario Canseco adds 76 per cent of respondents say the $40 a day promised for childcare if the strike continues should be reinvested into the school system.
