Hearing the BC Liberals spin about the Education Crisis is embarrassing. Once again they are shifting the blame on to our teachers in an attempt to outrage the public. Forget the propaganda and spin, here’s a fact: BC students receive $1000 less per year in funding than the Canadian average. With 550 000 students, that amounts to $500 million per year in education underfunding. That’s just this year. The BC Liberal attack on our education system and organized working people started over a decade ago. We should have public outrage. Where has the education funding gone in the last decade? What have we been subsidizing? What have they done to our tax dollars and our children?

The BC Liberals are not focusing on educating our children. Rather, they are focusing on what they can get away with.
