Please read the specific paragraph directed to you:

To all my fellow students: Have you felt tired because of all the homework and tests coming? Have you wanted to do a subject you really like but it only appears once in a school cycle? Wanted to go out with friends but there is too much homework? Bored in class because you already know or struggling to know the subject material? Well, in Finland, there is no such thing as homework. No such thing as a test. All their subjects are all equal. Everyone is taught so they can build with the knowledge they already have. All that and the fact that their school days are significantly shorter than the average school day here. Yet, they have the best education system in the world. Places like Singapore, programmes like Khan Academy are also doing great things. Why not be like Finland? It solves all our problems, relieves stress, and most importantly, makes us able to build friendships and character traits.

To all my teachers and staff: Working long hours, then coming home to mark tests and homework and assignments just to hand it in tomorrow doing the same thing while only earning $22.50 CAD an hour (minimum wage $11.06 CAD). That has put you all in tremendous stress while fighting to keep your wages steady. How hard has that been? Don't worry as there is no more reason to. We can make our educational system excel. Finland has the best education system in the world. But they don't have tests or homework to mark. They have shorter school days and teachers and staff earn much more than here. You can finally have some time to have fun with your life and your family. With your extra time, you would now be able to help the ones in need of extra. It is now way easier for your life as also our life.

To all the politicians, activists, and ordinary people: You have undermined the students. Pushing many resources away from education and to be put into more social programs and so on. Though you may see us as small young children that have no authority, we can control the world later on. If you all make a small investment in education the outcome of the next generation will be so much better. The students that receive more money in education will become more intelligent and more productive workers as suppose to unemployment and huge leaps of debt. Later, wouldn't you all agree that the world will be mostly automated? Well, if we produce factory workers all like-minded, wouldn't you  all agree that would be absolutely horrible? Well that's the path we are headed for. Even though students are 20% of the population, they are 100% of our future. And if we don't attend their dreams and courage and inspiration, the world may cease to exist.
