U-Pass BC 2013 Referendum: Not fair on students who don't drive

There is a referendum underway for the U-Pass BC. The pass expires in March 2013, and all students have to vote to either continue with the pass or to end it.

U-Pass BC is available to all post-secondary students in BC through a partnership between the Province of British Columbia, TransLink and BC Transit. The program is universal for all eligible Metro Vancouver post-secondary students and is mandatory in order to lower the cost per student.

All this sounds fine in theory but there is a serious flaw in reasoning in the whole affair.

Teachers getting worked over by tdsb, the framing game and what can be done to help?

Hello and welcome to my first post.

I scanned this site and various forums looking for any discussions on the current battle between teachers and the TDSB. Not so much about the Ontario Gov't position but how the TDSB has been deskilling these professionals by implementing...imposing in various ways onto the teachers authoritarian rules  regulations and procedures designed to alienate teachers from each other, parents and ultimately students.
