For years, student teachers haven't been paid during any of their internships, which made things difficult during the semester, as we had to attend classes, complete assignments, working outside of school hours, all while teaching full time (for our internship). We worked long, hard hours, without any day to rest, and we struggled to make end's meet, affecting our health, our grades, and leaving many of us in debt. Now, this year, for the first time, the government has decided to rightfully pay $5,000 to each 4th year student teacher for their hard-working 7 week internship. Although, teachers, who graduated from McGill University only year or two ago are in shock, as we sit here, still trying to pay off our debts and get back all the time and hard work we put in during our final semesters as interns for the BEd. program. This is not right, and we deserve to be treated equally, as we completed the same number of hours, and worked just as hard, and received zero payment for all our efforts during our fourth and final field experience. We worked full time for 7 weeks, without pay, working overtime, and then working after school hours to pay for our education, supplies which we needed to excel during our internships, housing, food, and living. We deserve the same compensation as the rest.
