 Forum: Current Events   Topic: Edmonton teacher who gave 0s for unsubmitted work fired

Ha ha! I don't know if I'm back. This case just got me so annoyed that I needed to vent, so I checked if there was a thread here on it, and sure enough there was!

The reception is warm enough, though. I might pop in from time to time. :)

I've been reading a lot about this case, as it's topical given that my wife is studying to be a teacher, topical in that he was a physics teacher and I'm a physics grad of the U of A, and just a generally thought provoking case. My wife has heard all about the supposed benefits of no-zero policies. ...

:P Still not hearing much cause for sympathy for the farmers who voted in the people who want to take away their marketing monopoly. That's not to say that I don't like the idea of the CWB. Seems to me that the only reason that one farmer selling his grain ouside the CWB can fetch a larger price is ...

If western farmers wanted the wheat board so badly, I have to wonder why western farmers gave the Conservatives their majority. I count well over 20 western rural Conservative wins, and a 12 seat majority. Not a single Saskatchewan riding went to the NDP. Are grain farmers that hopelessly outnumber...

Well, it's true. If you can't breathe, how are you going to make money, and what would you do with money in a world where no one can even breathe anyway? Yea, and the Conservatives are going to take away all your air. :roll: You mean if a cause is rich enough. The Reform party had some rather large...

Well, given that Harper's backpedalling at 120kph (breaking the limit, but just a little bit - nothing everybody else isn't doing) on the whole idea of a one-on-one, I don't think he thinks he can win.

Not at all. It's never too soon to teach girls to trust and respect their own bodies, especially when it comes to matters of child rearing and child birth. There is far too much pressure out there in the other direction.

But Bacardi4206, you know kids imitate everything they see. I'd go as far as saying that young girls that saw/see women breastfeeding, imitate that behavior with their dolls. I can personally state that you are correct - that does in fact happen. And they don't need a $100 doll to do it either. Thi...

See, now there^ is exactly what I am 'getting on about'! Even parents who 'don't need it' get paid. Simply put, that is wrong! It should be based on 'need' which should have to be proven. As I stated earlier, If parents who don't 'need' this money simply put it away in an interest bearing account, ...

Surely you get that $100 from the feds, no? That's all Yogi said his example families were getting too. Nobody's scamming that I can see. That's different from the child care subsidy. Everyone is supposed to get 'Family allowance' or whatever they call it these days. Low income families can also qu...

"Raw data is always good to have." No, it's not always good to have. Raw data is good to have if you know what its strenghts and weaknesses are and are sufficiently experienced to know how to use it properly. And a sample size of 30, the largest listed, would carry a margin of error of 18%, and that...

Here's my problem with this situation: Elizabeth May isn't allowed into the debates because her party doesn't hold a seat in Parliament. But she doesn't hold a seat in Parliament because the electoral system is rigged to always elect the same parties in some sort of similar configuration with the N...

It's sad that acknowledgement of common ground and working together is seen as a loss of credibility. I guess the only "credible" way to stop splitting the vote is to have some guy sandbag the little party into folding into the larger.

Stupid. She has more right to be there than the Bloc does. Based on what? What makes her deserving, Duceppe not, and, say, Ron Gray of the Christian Heritage party not? They ran 59 candidates in 9 provinces. Sure, they only got 0.19% of the popular vote to the Greens' 6.78%, but any criteria based ...
