To the Honourable the Legislative Assembly of the Province of British Columbia, in Legislature Assembled and the British Columbia Teachers Federation:

The petition of the undersigned states that:

Whereas a stable and robust public education system is essential for the social, economic and environmental future of the province;

and Whereas over BC’s 142-year educational history, officials have faced – and overcome – many challenges concerning the delivery of public education;

and Whereas there is much to be proud of in our public schools including well-educated, hard-working teachers; parents who advocate passionately for their children; and students who consistently perform extremely well in the Programme for International Student Assessment;

and Whereas BC children, their parents and their teachers are the ones affected by the current inability of the government and the British Columbia Teachers Federation (BCTF) to reach a negotiated settlement to the ongoing labour dispute;

Therefore, be it resolved that the BC government and the BCTF set aside their political differences and ensure that a labour settlement is reached prior to the commencement of the 2014-2015 school year.
