700,000 students attend secondary school in Ontario every year. This year, for 3-6 weeks 72,000 students were out of class. Due to the strikes that took place, the students that missed class will not have to write exams. While life isn't always fair, since roughly 10% of students don't have to write exams, the other students shouldn't have to. This is especially the case for senior students, who have probably already been accepted to the college or university of their choice and need to maintain a specific average in order to attend post-secondary school next year.

What happens if the student who got no time off, worked hard all year, and has one bad exam gets their acceptance revoked? Does that spot go to the student who has worked less, got time off, but because they did not have to write exams, has the necessary average to go to school next year?

If you think this scenario is unfair then sign the petition. This is a very real possibility for students within the next month so let's try and apply what we've been taught and fight for equality.

Thank you for all your support,
