It’s about Math, not Mother’s Day

What we need in Ontario schools is more teaching and less co-parenting.

More concern about raising student math scores in elementary schools, where they’ve been on the decline for five years.

Less about changing Father’s Day and Mother’s Day to “Love Day” and “GAMES Day” (Grandmothers, Aunts, Moms, Even Sisters) out of respect for children who don’t come from traditional families.

This latest bit of wisdom comes courtesy of the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario, which says it also wants to ensure children from gay and lesbian families don’t feel excluded at school.

We’ve got a better idea. How about we let teachers teach and parents parent, which includes preparing them for life, no matter what background they come from?  (more...)
