NEW) PRES­I­DENT, BC TEACH­ERS’ FED­ER­A­TION

The Ed­u­ca­tor Glen Hans­man, elected last year to lead the BC Teach­ers’ Fed­er­a­tion, made his name help­ing to get an anti-ho­mo­pho­bia pol­icy adopted by the Van­cou­ver School Board in 2004—a ground­break­ing move that has since been copied by boards across Canada. To­day, the for­mer spe­cial-ed­u­ca­tion teacher and pres­i­dent of the Van­cou­ver Ele­men­tary School Teach­ers’ As­so­ci­a­tion faces his big­gest chal­lenge yet: lling 3,000 teach­ing po­si­tions and re­turn­ing B.C. class sizes to 2002 lev­els, as or­dered last year by the Supreme Court of Canada.
