Media Advisory - Delegates gather - Hundreds of teachers gather to demonstrate, reflect and debate

MONTREAL, Nov. 21, 2016 /CNW Telbec/ - Media representatives are invited this morning from 7:45 am outside the Montreal office of the Premier of Quebec. At least 250 teachers from the eight unions affiliated with the Fédération autonome de l'enseignement (FAE) will be demonstrating to remind Philippe Couillard that the experts in the classroom are the teachers. Alain Marois, the FAE's Vice-president, Political Affairs, will be speaking. The teachers will then march to the Montreal Westin Hotel, for a day spent reflecting on their profession and talking about prospects for the future, as the national consultation on education gets under way.

Overall, 400 delegates will be hearing from the professor Antoine Baby, who will present his critical views on the several education reforms implemented in the province of Quebec over the last decades. Journalists are also invited to this part of the day's events.
