Sciopero insegnanti: St. Raphael non è sicura

TORONTO – Il caos regna alla St. Raphael Catholic School. Numerosi insegnanti si rifiutano di lavorare ed alcuni genitori non portano i figli a scuola.

E così mentre gli esperti ritengono che ci siano preoccupazioni per la salute, alcuni insegnanti affermano di avvertire da anni sintomi riconducibili alla concentrazione di Co2 nellaria.

Corporately, a legacy against which the public can measure value to societal standards. Both are built incrementally by sweat and tears. The ride is not always smooth.

The Corriere Canadese, in one form or another, has been in the service of the Italian Canadian community since 1954. Its purpose, from my point of view, has always been to integrate immigrant value structures into those newer ones that individual newcomers and their families were creating, in the course of their interaction with other disparate immigrant groups.
