The Year Without Report Cards
As part of a contract dispute, teachers in British Columbia have been working on a limited-duties basisor, depending on your perspective, you might say a focused-duties basis. They are still teaching in their classrooms, but they are refusing, among other things, to communicate with administrators, attend staff meetings, or do playground duty. (Nice work if you can get it, right?) But what's really fraying nerves now is that they are declining to write report cards, the first of which are scheduled to be sent home next month. From some of the commentary, you'd have thought they cancelled Christmas.
