Sooke Teacher Association President Ian Johnson emailed Sooke PocketNews the following statement this evening.
[sam id=”15″ codes=”true”]The Sooke Teachers’ Association expects members to treat all students with respect and dignity. There is no place for racism or discrimination of any kind in our inclusive schools.
Mr. Pell has admitted his error and acknowledges that his behaviour was inappropriate. The complaint has been dealt with by the Teacher Regulation Branch, and he will fulfill the TRB’s expectation that he enrol in a cultural sensitivity course.
