Archive: Teachers, Failing Our Kids

More To Life

For years, Ontario's 140,000 teachers have been in a showdown with the government over labour disputes. But behind the headlines, lies the truth in teaching - shaping and inspiring the minds of Ontario's students. Is it still the greatest profession in the world? Has a teacher changed your life for the better? Today, Education Columnist Wili Liberman is here for a call-in to celebrate Ontario's teachers along with Jennifer Beauregard - this year's winner of the Prime Minister's award for teaching Excellence. And are Ontario's public schools a healthy place for our kids to learn? Dr. Charles Ungerleider doesn't think so. He's the former Deputy Minister of Education for British Columbia and the author of Failing our Kids: How We Are ruining our Public Schools. He'll be here to take your calls and teach us what we can do to save our schools. This show contains a Planet Parent segment.
