Strike impacting community

Community schools’ summer programs are cancelled. This community looks forward to the summer because of them.

To the Editor,

I have had enough of the teachers’ strike. The government and teachers are acting like the children they teach.

When a person decides on a career in teaching, you know exactly what that job entails. You have many benefits to your career. Every job has problems, but sooner than later they get resolved.

The only sin in this scenario is that the children of this community are suffering from these money issues.

Community schools’ summer programs are cancelled. There are lots of programs for all ages. This community looks forward to the summer because of them. There’s learning, socialization, outdoors, friendships and just plain fun.

In my opinion, it is a mistake for the school board administration to cancel community programs and meeting places. Why should the administration cancel programs because the teachers are grumpy?
