- Halton District school board
The Halton district schools believe we should not have a strike that's including our teachers, it's not fair to anyone and it's just penalizing us.
This year grade 9 students will move on to grade 10 and will have to do the EQAO test, none will be prepared and all the marks will just reflect back onto the Ontario curriculum and our teachers. Many students want to excel and do the best they can through high school to move onto University.
Having a teachers strike may not look good and reflect well on a resume or an application to another school. Also as everyone knows sports are going on throughout the year and are going on right now, many students have worked hard to earn money to play the sport they love, to become apart of the schools. However if the year does end early many students won't have a chance to play anymore and many won't get the money they worked hard for back.
If you want to do what is right for this generation of kids and young adults you should not put any of the Halton area schools on strike for reasons that do not require a strike.
Stop the Strike for Halton Schools.
Together we can put an end to the strike for our schools.
