Its time IV Ed Butler & the Alberta Teachers Association (ATA) to shut up, man up, keep quiet, get back II work. Alison & you restore the $107 million as she promised & now union members are bitching that they want more. Plus they aren't happy with how cash is being dealt out. Cry me a river ATA. You were given "carte blanche" on how II dole out the funds & what boards would receive what. In these trying times, many departments have no operational ctrl. over their funds & faced even bigger cutbacks than education & these were never restored. Mr. Butler & the ATA need II own up & be more accountable as there were many other worthwhile groups even more valuable than teachers out there that could have used those funds!
No Funding Crisis,
