Coquitlam Teachers’ Association (CTA) was incorporated as a society under the Societies Act on May 23, 1973. Since that time the membership has grown steadily to more than 2300 teachers; making the CTA the third largest BCTF local in the province. The history of the organization illustrates its effectiveness in working for the rights of teachers and students in promoting public education.

Education Funding Review & the Prevalence Model Proposal for Funding for Special Needs

Please read the document below produced by the BCTF articulating our concerns with the education funding review and the prevalence model proposed for funding for special needs. A change to a prevalence-based funding model undermines teachers’ collective agreement language on class composition and the ratios language that are primary workload control. The disconnection of funding from identification means that there will be no way to enforce that students receive the help that they need. No jurisdiction has ever embraced a full funding model based on prevalence. We need to fight this at every opportunity. This brochure provides information you can use to talk to people about this matter.  Please, also communicate with your MLAs on this matter. This is a government initiative and they need to hear how people feel about it.
