Letters: Get our kids back in school

Supreme Court decision should have teachers and students in schools

My name is Trudy Spiller, I am a mother, grandmother and great grandmother.

I am currently raising my great niece and grandson who should be going in to Grades 3 and 4 this year. I am very disappointed that the B.C. Liberal Government and teachers have walked away from the negotiating table.

We live in a democracy where we should believe that when something goes in to a Supreme Court decision that that decision is binding on both parties? I am somewhat baffled, the Supreme Court decision is now being negotiated after the fact by the government of the day and that our children will not be going back to school?

So, do we then teach our children that as long as you are government, you can or not accept a Supreme Court decision? What is the government teaching our children? Get our children back to school.
