For the record: Vancouver Elementary Teachers' Association on Teaching 2010
Resistance

VANCOUVER, Oct. 16 /CNW/ - "Reports indicating that the Vancouver Elementary School Teachers' Association is associated with the Olympic Resistance Network are inaccurate," says Chris Harris, President of the Vancouver Elementary Teachers' Association (VESTA). "VESTA is not associated with the Olympic Resistance Network or the organization called Teach2010. VESTA has not endorsed any positions they have taken or any materials they have produced."

"What VESTA did was provide a link on its website as an item that might be of interest to some members and provide information to staff reps that this event was happening," Mr. Harris continues. "VESTA does this frequently for many community groups and events that relate to public education in Vancouver."

"Neither VESTA nor the BCTF have taken any position on the 2010 Olympics," he concludes. "Many teachers will take the opportunity to use the Olympics as a teaching tool in the classroom with all of the resources available to them. They will do so as professionals and ensure students in Vancouver have the opportunity to learn about all aspects of the Olympics."
