Reader letter: Parent supports strike action by teachers

"I am a parent and support the striking teachers across Ontario."

Nobody ever wants to go on strike. People strike when there is no other course of action and things have become so bad that it becomes necessary to say, “enough is enough.”

As a parent I’ve had enough of Doug Ford’s attack on education. Enough of shoehorning more kids into already overfilled classrooms. Enough taking away support staff for students. Enough unilaterally deciding that online courses are capable of replacing real face-to-face education.

And by the way, enough of the lies, claiming that these changes are what parents have requested. What parent ever asks to have their child placed in an overcrowded classroom with decimated learning support?

The government is insisting this job action is about greedy teachers looking for more money. It is not. Shame on this government trying to deceive the public this way. And if you’ve been believing the lies, then shame on you.
