Mr. Couillard,

In the Montreal Gazette on August 28th you are quoted as saying “each time I see people protesting, I think about people not protesting. For one person protesting, there are probably hundreds of people not protesting.

There may not have been many protestors in St-Georges-de-Beauce but those protestors represent tens of thousands of people who support quality education for the Quebec youth.

We DO protest!

  • Dramatic reduction in support and services to students with special needs.
  • The increase in student teacher ratio.
  • Removal of codes that identify students with special needs in the classroom.
  • Increased work loads for teachers, staff and administration.
  • Adjusting previously agreed upon pension plans.

What does this mean?

  • Students with special needs will have even less support.
  • Major increases in the number of students in classrooms, adding an average of 2-5 more students, possibly more...
  • Research supports small class sizes for at risk students. They will be affected.
  • Teachers already struggle to manage in inclusive environments - it will only get harder.
  • Less jobs for young teachers.

Don't give up on public education.
