As a student support worker, I dealt with students who were facing very tough issues including facing homelessness. I was the first person they went to say ‘I don’t have anywhere to be’. Due to funding cuts our board lost all support workers. Teachers are some of the most resourceful people I know, but they can’t do it all by themselves.

Mandy was a Student Support Partner from Lanark County, Ontario. Due to funding cuts, her board cut 24 Student Support Partner positions and she worries that students will have nowhere to turn for help.
