The Catholic School Board wants to change our format of the education system. St. Joseph is the best highschool in Grande Prairie as well as the only Catholic Highschool in Grande Prairie but they want to make us "the best school in Alberta because it isn't good enough." They think that by taking away ALL Pre-AP courses that the Pre-AP kids will be helping the non Pre-AP kids improve while they will be distracted by un-focused kids who don't want to be there.They are now making classrooms where we are handed our work to take home and do on our own time. We go to normal classes but we would teach ourselves. Even though we have all objected, they think that we don't know what's best for us, they want to benefit the small minority of students who don't like classrooms. But what about the rest of us? Well we suffer. This is our education, not theirs. Our future is at stake but they only care about themselves and looking good. They care about what's best for the school board, not what's best for our education. They want to increase our statistics of being the "best in Alberta", they don't care about us, they care about "fixing perfection". They won't hear our opinions, they say that this is final but we, as educated students want to change this. Who is being affected? Us, not them. We are the future generation and if we don't get the education we deserve then what will happen?
They want to reformat the class as well, they want 25 students who will go from class to class with each other, with the same teacher for every year till graduation. None of us see any benefits, and honestly the education system is perfect.
We care for our education and are concerned, we as students hope that this petition will help express our concerns as we cannot do it alone.
This is our school and we hope that our education will always be in.the Catholic School Board's best interest.
