My blogsite will continue to run during the holidays, though I will be often out and about, not here every day. I will make a special note of providing news links etc in my Teacher Summer News + Views blog as the need arises. The Queen's Park legislature will continue through July to pass the budget. Your teacher union should be busy negotiating provincially and at the local level: You are to have a new teacher contract by August 31 when your current one expires. I will track these and provide the links for you here.
Please also note: there are over 500 teacher blogs in my archive below this column when you scroll down the page. They are organized by date from 2011 to now. You will find lots and lots of info and links on any number of articles of teacher + union interest. I think they provide a pretty good resource for a lot that has happened in Ontario's schools, our union movement, + the related party politics over the past 3 years. Without doubt there is a lot of thought provoking materials that's well worth another gander.
I might well do some more travel blogs, music reviews and other special features for those of you who visit here for these. I pretty much write these as I feel so inspired. Remember, the "Heavy Rotation" and "Quickie Review" features near the bottom of my blog page are also updated with info about music, movies and TV etc. etc. etc., whatever I'm into at home. Check there too!
