Nelson Mandela Park Public School, 440 Shuter Street, Toronto
At Nelson Mandela Park Public School, we are committed to building a “Culture of Caring” that allows all of our students to reach their maximum potential. Our “Culture of Caring” means:
We care about quality teaching and learning for all of our students;
We care about having high expectations for all of our students;
We care about social justice, and making our world a better place.
“After waiting twenty minutes, we are ushered into a room upstairs. A woman from the agency hands each of us a time sheet. For the sign-in, she tells us to write 8:30. “I know you were told to be here at 8:15,” she says, anticipating a protest that never comes, “but that was just to make sure you got here early.”
And, like that, fifteen minutes are lopped from our paycheck. It’s a small but important lesson in what it means to be a “flexible” worker.”
