LETTER: Let’s speak out to return to school

I feel that we have been away from school because of the strike long enough...

Who wants to go back to school? Almost every kid, every parent, and every teacher in British Columbia.

I feel that we have been away from school because of the strike long enough.

I am ready to learn more strategies in reading, writing and math. I miss talking in French with my classmates and my teacher. And not to forget choir, gym class, library and being active with my friends outside.

In school, we learn to problem-solve. Why can’t the government and the BCTF figure this out peacefully and quickly?

Both sides are saying that kids’ education comes first. So show us you mean it.

I have been feeling upset long enough. Let’s speak out to return to school!
