School District 61 (Greater Victoria) has recently announced they will not offer certain contracts to teachers who will be taking a pregnancy or parental leave. This is discriminatory, and violates teachers' human rights. A public school district should support women's and parent's rights, not discriminate against them in employment. The school district should stop trying to save money on the backs of mothers and parents and ensure that all teachers have equal access to all work and benefits.
