Kids could be heading back to school as early as Monday in British Columbia after a tentative deal between the B.C. Teachers’ Federation and the provincial government.
Teachers will vote on the deal Thursday. A part of the deal includes a wage increase of 7.25 per cent over six years.
“I think [teachers] gave up more than the government gave up to get the deal,” said UBC education professor Wayne Ross. “But the government had many more cards to play, and they had a lot more time to hold out than the teachers did.”
