Petition to keep the Learning Strategies program at DDSB

This petition was started because the Durham District School Board has decided to put an end to the Learning Strategies program in 19 of our schools. We, the children, parents, family and friends need to stand up and do what we need to in order to prevent this from happening. Children that have learning disabilities or do not meet the "STANDARDS" set out by the Education system need this program to cope. Children that have been placed in this program have had their work modified so that they can have an understanding of what they need to continue to flourish and become confident within themselves. Without this program this children will continue to do poorly and gain very low self-esteem due to the fact that they can not understand the work given to them. It is heart breaking to me to see that there are programs for "gifted" children, children with "behavioral" problems as well as a class for the "disabled". Why take away the one class that aids the children that can not learn the way that they are "SUPPOSED" to? You can not see their disability but that does not mean that they need to be forgotten. Please help us in any way that you can...even if it's to just sign this petition. Please feel free to leave any comments. Hopefully we can all ban together to help these children out!
