For the Future of our Students; Support for the BC Government sign now

Students in our province are now divided in the major dispute of our education system between the government, the law, and the teachers of this province. Needless to say, our schools are shut down because of it. Despite having strong support for your cause, there is equal, if not greater opposition to it.

On October 7th, you closed our schools placing a hold on all music programs, theatre programs, athletic programs, school clubs, and most importantly, scholarship applications. As many of you who have children in high school know, the Ministry of Education changed the graduation program so that we will have Provincial Exams from Grades 10 through 12. If by extending the walkout any longer, it is safe to say that we might have to redo the entire semester or even the school year if we aren't returned to our classrooms.

The time in school is especially neccessary for the Grade 12's of BC who are on the brink of graduation and Post-Secondary Education. Students in Grade 12 (Grad 2006) are suffering mainly because they are in the midst of studying for Provincial Exams. Some who are applying for scholarships can't get their applications in. Why? Well simply because there's no one at school to send them into! Is it really neccessary to let the students of BC suffer more now to improve their lives in the future?

You might say that fighting for what you beleive in is right. But if it means breaking the law, you should think twice about that. For if you are breaking the laws of our society by not listening to the courts or the government, you are at the same time, sending the message to the students of BC that it is morally sound to defy laws and rules if it's against your beliefs.

Is this the society we want live in? Ask yourselves that. We ask that the above parties put an end to this mockery of the law, send our students back to the classrooms and sit down with the respective individuals to settle this dispute once and for all.
