Archive: Show #188 "Teacher Trouble, The Sequel"

4th Reading

Education Minister Janet Ecker is poised to announce new funding levels for Ontario school boards. She says that means more money for students in the classroom. But teacher unions say the government is coming at them with guns a-blazing. The issue? The same one that caused a province-wide teachers' strike 3 years ago - so-called "prep time". This one may be too hot to handle even for a minister known for her conciliatory approach. Fourth Reading's guest: Education Minister Janet Ecker. Regular panel of Ruth Grier, Richard Mahoney and Gina Brannan.
