Protest Bill 115, The "Putting Students First Act" and Support Teachers!

      Tom Carnegie

      Ottawa, Canada

By enacting Bill 115, the so-called `Putting Students First Act` teachers have been stripped of their right to strike. Teachers have decided to fight back. Because they no longer have the right to strike and walk out of work, all extra-curricular activities have been cancelledto fight back against the government. This means that there will be no extra help for students. This means that there will be no clubs for students. This means that there will be no sports teams for students. Everything that makes school a place that is fun and enjoyable is currently lost.

Teachers work so hard to create these activities for us and should not be ripped off by the government. All extracurricular activites, extra help, and coaching teachers do is VOLUNTEER BASED. THEY RECIEVE NO PAY FOR THESE ACTIVITES. Let's show the government how we appreciate the work they do for us and support them!

Extra-curricular activities are what bring a school community together.This is affecting students all across Ontario and is weighing heavily on students and teachers alike. Please bring things back to the way they should be.

      Because the effects are negative and change the lives of many including my peers and teachers. Without the time for help, outside of class time, people can't get by

      This is a basic constitutional right of all people. If we let this happen to teachers, it's the first step towards total loss of " freedom" for all.

      Because I appreciate not only the cognitive and emotional wisdom many teachers impart on but mainly all the extra work and support.

      I am a support worker in the education sector and I don't think it's right that the government can interfere with collective bargaining which should be between the school board and employees only.
