Let's Talk Teachers & Government
Strike action, also called labor strike, labor strike, on strike, greve (of French: grève), or simply strike, is a work stoppage caused by the mass refusal of employees to work. A strike usually takes place in response to employee grievances. The union representing Ontario's elementary school teachers will meet with the premier on Friday morning, the day after it announced its members will stop supervising all extra-curricular activities in schools starting next week.
We are slowly tearing and ripping the economy apart. One of the reasons is strikes. The point of this petition is not to point fingers. But to show you the student's and parents of students who want the Government as well as the Teachers to give in and work together. I am a student Devin, I am not fully educated on the things that are going on in our union but from what I hear it could have consequences. SCHOOL'S SHOULD BE A COMMUNITY, A FAMILY. WE HAVE TO WORK TOGETHER. What makes a family? What makes a community? Not only learning but experiencing things together. Plays, Trips, Dances, etc. Now they are getting rid of those.
Research from the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) and the National Research Council (U.S.) shows that participation in extracurricular activities, sports and clubs are key characteristics for evaluating student engagement and students’ sense of belonging at school. This research also shows that both engagement and belonging have a significant impact on students’ overall success.
According to the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association, “extracurricular activities can . . . foster lifelong appreciation and interests, preparing a young person for life in ways that go beyond academic success.”
Students, Parents, ANYBODY. Help the students of schools in the DSBN, and anywhere prove to the teachers and the union that they need to talk.
