McGuinty to public teachers: bring back extracurriculars
We don't know yet how public teachers will show their anger over having contracts forced on them.
But the Premier is asking union leaders to let teachers pick up the extracurricular activities abandoned in protest of Bill 115.
Dalton McGuinty says he's received no assurances that basketball & glee clubs would be restored, but he wanted to reach out personally to see if there's any way to move ahead.
The Putting Students First Act prompted 1-day strikes by public elementary teachers. Their high school counterparts cut out extracurriculars.
The government has promised to repeal the law by the end of the month.
