Premier Christy Clark is once again turning to social media to wade into the teachers dispute.
In a post on Facebook last night, Clark says “she understands how difficult a time this is for students, parents and teachers”, and “no one wants to see our schools closed due to a teachers’ strike.”
Clark also expressed her continued support for Education Minister Peter Fassbender, who says the only place to get an agreement is at the table.
She then posted a copy of a letter from Fassbender from last week. It said the government is standing firm until the union moves off its demands, which he calls unaffordable.
The Premier also took her message to Twitter.
Clark has been noticeably absent from much of the public debate around the education dispute, refusing calls by the teachers union president to meet with him face-to-face.
