Truancy policies can catch parents by surprise

Meanwhile, expect teachers to work miracles turning your kids into senators and brain surgeons while you can't even deliver thFedEx school fed, dressed, equipped and on time. Just drop the little darlings off whenever it's convenient for you and if the school ever dares to ask for some accountability on your part, blast away. And for what it's worth, I just don't believe the school nurse is doing "unwarranted medical checks" on students. I believe school nurses have their hands full giving out ADHD meds, dealing with injuries and vomit, doing paperwork, monitoring diabetics and dealing with sick kids who show up in the clinic.

Collective bargaining issues expose open rift among education lobby groups

Here's the reason the conversation gets shifted from policy matters to union matters, Moderate: teachers are told to accomplish ABCDEFG. Then they are given enough resources to accomplish ABC and D. So they request (or "beg" or "scream" for, as some put it) more resources, and the union is the most effective way of doing so.

So if certain high-performing teachers are to be paid more and there will be additional monies available to secure great science and math teachers, where will this money come from? Paying other teachers less? Cutting positions? Don't we already hire the best teachers available? Isn't the three-year long probation period sufficient to determine whether a teacher is worth keeping?

Letter: Carbon tax

This sounds like Science. Science is irritating because of all the big words. At my house there is snow, and snow is cold. Hello? Not warm! You can tell global warming is not real just by looking at all this snow. And also, something about solar flares.
