More than 30,000 B.C. teachers voted "yes" by 99.4 per cent to return to classes -- if the B.C. Liberal government will agree to send to arbitration all the issues except for those related to court decisions.

In announcing the results, BCTF President, Jim Iker, said "Tomorrow morning, custodial staff could be pulling chairs off desks and teachers could be setting up their classrooms. School counsellors could be finalizing time tables. Teachers could be powering up the smart boards. Classes could start this week. Children could be learning."

Iker said "there is a single group of people standing in the way of schools opening their doors tomorrow."

Affordability is becoming the new buzzword of the B.C. government. But what does affordability mean for a provincial government? And what are the consequences of not investing in education and health?

Educator and spoken-word poet Taylor Mali often uses the term "Miracle Workers" to describe teachers. Speaking to this term, I couldn't agree more. Teachers are miracle workers who support us and assist us at unbelievably great lengths to help us reach for (and connect to) our futures and realize our dreams.
