The Ross Shepard teacher suspended for handing out zeros for undone work thinks it's just a matter of time before he's fired.
Monday, September 10th, there was a hearing to decide the fate of physics teacher Lyndon Dorval, who violated the school's no-zero policy.
He says he hopes the province steps in to protect other teachers from the trouble he's found himself in.
"It would take one simple thing" he says, "and that would be to change the School Act to reflect what the ATA--even though the ATA is not supporting me on this--the ATA has a clear policy that says that teachers are the ones to make the decisions about evaluation. If that simple statement could be in the School Act, I would still be teaching right now."
Dorval says a decision has yet to be made, but after the outcome of his suspension hearing, he expects he'll lose his job.
As for the school's no-zero policy, it's set to be debated at a school board meeting Tuesday. (ms)
