Laura Chesnik, MLPC Spokesperson on Education and Related Affairs
Laura Chesnik is the MLPC spokesperson on education and related matters. She is a teacher in Windsor, Ontario. She is a union activist, a mother, a sports coach, a worker politician and a champion of the rights of all to achieve security, prosperity and peace. She organizes Canadians to decide matters for themselves and speak in their own name. She takes initiatives with her colleagues and peers to smash the silence on the working conditions of educators and their striving to empower themselves so that the anti-social trend is ended. She collaborates with others to provide the information people need to draw warranted conclusions and take stands that favour them.
Laura works with others to provide forums for educators, support staff, students and parents to speak out and engage in discussion. Examples of these discussions on the topic of education and related affairs can be found at a podcast she co-hosts at edisaright.ca. The discussions show what can be done nation-wide and in every sphere of endeavour to open a path for society’s progress. The podcast stands in stark contrast to the crass electioneering and wasteful spending spree for votes and power engaged in by the parties which form a cartel party system and vie to form the next government to serve the narrow private interests of the financial oligarchy, which the people are striving to stop from running rampant.
Discussions help listeners sort through what is significant and what is not. Significant issues include who decides the content and direction of education and the role it plays in society; how should the wages and working conditions of educators and support workers be decided; how do we as a society guarantee the right to education for all; and, how to solve the problems caused by the privatization of all aspects of education and the pressure this puts on everyone involved and society. Such discussions provide a means to unify those who are striving to end the anti-social offensive and turn things around in favour of the present and future generations. Join In!
