I was the person students wait for when they want to talk about their heartbreaks, their worries and their thoughts of suicide. That’s a key part of what we do. We’re there and we keep kids safe. In our board, all of our student support partners were laid off. I won’t be returning to the classroom and there’s no contingency plan for those students. I fear for our kids.
Student Support Partner
Shelley was a Student Support Partner in Brockville, Ontario. Due to funding cuts, all the Student Support Partners in her school board were laid off and she worries that students will have fewer places to turn when they need help.
The decisions we make today will not only decide the caliber of education our students receive, but the people they grow up to be, the communities they help to build, and the prosperity of the province they live in. Become a supporter today and help give our students the education system they deserve!
