For those who don't know who Don McRae is, he is the current in a long line of BC Education Ministers. The BC Liberal government has a habit of chewing through Education ministers which probably tells you they don't care much for the file.
You'd think Don's experience as a teacher would be useful in his ministerial role but since his appointment it has become quite clear that he can't, or isn't allowed to, think for himself. Instead all he spouts is party doctrine.
The video is a dramatization of an actual letter he wrote when he was a teacher, not a politician, to then education Shirley Bond, one of BC's worst-ever education ministers although Christy Clark and Margaret MacDiarmid were both awful too.
In the video teacher-McRae laments over class size and composition. As minister-McRae he tells teachers and parents that these aren't issues at all.
Which version of McRae do you believe?
