The decisions to close schools for weather are not based on safety. They are based on liability. The people making theses decisions are in full blown CYA mode.
What a horribly one-sided article.
It's curious that Boon and Dingwell couldn't find a single parent or student who has concerns about the teachers actions throughout these negotiations or with this "one-day" strike.
Maybe they're just lazy or maybe this is all we can expect from J Schools these days.
This set of labour negotiations has shown the NSTU and teachers for what they really are: mean and greedy. This is all about the obscene retirement bonus and more money in their pockets. The teachers have shown that they will enthusiastically hurt students to get their greedy financial demands. Shame on them!
The teachers were fine with all the problems in the classroom for each of their previous contracts ... because the government gave in to their financial demands.
This fight is really about the obscene retirement bonus and wage increases. Shame on them.

How about this Ms Littlefair ...
" ... does the mere suggestion of imagining yourself as a racist make you defensive? Dismissive? Angry?"
