Ontario's high school teachers volunteer outside of the class time to run many important clubs, councils and sports teams. Their efforts are much appreciated and give the students diverse opportunities to explore things that cannot be experienced in class time. Students learn how to manage their time wisely, build friendships, be respectful toward others and most importantly, learn more about themselves and gain self-confidence. They become well rounded people with high real-world abilities. However, all the good opportunities to learn these social skills have vanished due to strike. Moreover, all the entertainments, rights and freedoms of the students became restricted due to the cancelled extra-curriculum activities. It is unreasonable for them to be the victims of the strike. Government should not put students at the centre of a labour dispute.
