Last Leisurely Morning Coffee and Paper

I was actually in Yaletown at 8:00am, but I didn't have security passes or anything and I doubted that anyone came in that early. I hung out at Blenz until 8:45am, read the paper and then walked over. I was reading the paper about the dismal state of British Columbia's public education system as evidenced by the fact that everyone is enrolling their children in independent schools. The Liberal government plans to do surveys and get parents more involved.

I have no confidence in teachers in North America. My mother was an Elementary and Highschool teacher for over 10 years in China where the class sizes are over 60. Not only did my mother keep discipline in a class of 60+ and not only did she know every single student personally, their strengths, weaknesses, talents, fears, hopes and dreams, but my mother knew all her students' PARENTS personally. Every major city we visit in China MUST include visits to several families who knew my mother because she taught them in school. Mom has brought her teaching methods to Chinese schools here in Vancouver and is one of the most respected teachers.

Teachers in North America can't be bothered to tell the difference between their ass and their elbow. They can't keep discipline in a class of 20. And Substitutes are even more useless.
