- Federal & Provincial Government and Nova Scotia School Board
As it stands now, we as parents and teachers have no support from our government to help enforce and keep our youth in school.
There once was a law that everyone 16 years old and under had to attend grade school, otherwise a truancy officer & the family court would step in. Our youth know that they don't have to be in school. This has to change.
Our Parents and teachers hands are tied and our youth are slipping through the cracks. We see and hear it in the media every day. Our kids should be in school not running the streets.
We, the undersigned, call on the Nova Scotia Government and the Canadian Government to bring back TRUANCY OFFICERS to reinforce Compulsory Education.
The Get our Youth back in School petition to Federal & Provincial Government and Nova Scotia School Board was written by Diane Goodhew and is in the category Youth at GoPetition.
