Re Ontario Elementary and Secondary Strike Threats
Kids, now would be a good time to 'negotiate' changes to how your
teacher teaches. Why not tell them you want more control over how
much homework is issued, and what the subject is, and tell them you
want to hand it in when you feel like it. If you dont get your way
tell them you will refuse to answer questions in class and if that
does not work you will walk out.
When they tell you that they are the teacher and you are the
student and they set the rules, and since most of you have been
getting As for years they see no reason to change their teaching
methods, remind them that they are the employees and your parents are
the employers so refusing to negotiate is not an option.
Perhaps you should also ask for padded seats, larger desks, more
field trips (all expenses paid for) and guaranteed As no matter how
good or bad your work is.
A longtime rural resident, I use my 60 plus years of life learning to opinionate here and elsewhere on the “interweb” on everything from politics to environmental issues. A believer in reasonable discourse rather than unhelpful attacks I try to give positive input to the blogesphere, so feel free to comment upon rural issues or anything else posted here. But don’t be surprised if you comments get zapped if you are not polite in your replys.
