More Educational Assistants in the Classroom
Please support children in our public education system by showing support to bring More Educational Assistants back to our classrooms. The Ministry keeps cutting funds for Educational assistants who are the backbone at the ground level in the school for assisting kids physically and mentally through behavioral support. These kids are not being provided with enough support to carry out the suggestions made by our Ministries own Behavioural Consultants. Meltdowns and disruptions are going to become a common occurrence in our schools because kids are Not receiving the support they need. Special Ed kids are being put in the regular classroom (inclusion) without the means to stay afloat. Regular kids are being affected by the constant disruptions and behaviors. Kids are removed from their own class when a child acts up from their learning environment to somewhere deemed safe. This is not proactive. EA 's are trying to put out fires instead of teaching correct behaviors because there are not enough Hands. Kids with with behavioral issues are lumped in with the Sspecial needs children out of necessity so that they can all share one EA in the classroom.
