If you have, send this link to a colleague. You do not need to be a member and will not become a member by signing, so do it for the collective. Do it for all of us. Do it so we have a seat at the decision table.

Let's take a minute and recognize that educators are contracted to work 197 days per school year. That's a little over 39 weeks per year. That means that there are 13 weeks per calendar year in which educators earn zero income.

Let's dispel this myth that educators are paid to not work in the summer. The fact is they earned the pay they receive in summer during the 39 weeks they worked. The school division simply pays them over 12 months.

Let's respect the hard work of all educators as we move to the last few days of school. Every educator has earned their break and we hope they are able to enjoy at least a few days before starting on professional development, plans for the next year, or summer jobs.
