Refund for Lost Education
This petition had 3,142 supporters
I'd like to start this off by stating the truth... most college students are happy with the strike because it's a possibility of having an extra week off school. Yet, many of them don't realize this strike could last a lot longer than that, which is not only wasting your own money, but also drastically affecting your grades. Depending on the program you're enrolled in, your classes can range from 15$-50$ per class taught by a professor. Most college students have 7-8 classes a week, which is over a $100 every week. So not only are we losing our money for in-class taught lessons, but now we are expected to teach ourselves and keep up with our assignments while all of our teachers are being denied access to communicate with & help their students.
I will also be very honest again, in the fact that the colleges will most likely not refund us our money... but I believe that it's worth a try, to at least prove a point that this strike also affects us as paying students. Please sign this petition and pass it along to fellow students that you know are being affected.
