Not sure how to express or where to even begin expressing so many of the concerns at hand--but the concerns of parents need to come forward. Where is OUR VOICE in this?! These children are OUR children.
Day two of the lockout has come and gone. Our children are still the last thing on the Niagara Catholic Board of Education's mind, while they continue to be used like pawns on two sides of an argument.
But at 1:30 am this morning, a provincially appointment mediator declared an impasse in negotiations. Our Teacher's have offered to go back to work with no 'work-to-rule' while they await arbitration (clearly considering the children), and the Board has said no.
Our children are so confused. Coming off of already a week long break from school, their daily routines need to be restored for their structure and development, particularly in the younger ones. Put the children, the ones who are certainly being affected the most here, FIRST! Putting them first means ending the lockout, and having them back in school tomorrow, under the supervision of their teachers. The ones who chose a career in education, to EDUCATE young minds.
Sincerely, an incredibly failed, angry and frustrated parent of a Niagara Catholic Elementary Student,
