This article is satire, and is not meant to be taken literally. It parodies and serves as a comment on discriminatory anti-religious policy.
Religious clothing and symbols being seen in public is tearing our country apart! Luckily, we have the solution; a proposal that will put an end to our trouble. It is an unarguable opinion that religion is a private and personal matter, and our simple fix to this problem will keep it that way. It may make a few people uncomfortable, but it’s for the best.
School board trustee elections are a very overlooked issue that directly affects us students. Low voter participation & awareness enables the election of Trustees such as Donna Blackburn, who is infamous for backing cops in schools and being implicated in a variety of racist incidents. We need to help elect Trustees that care about students, thereby naturally increasing our voice in the process.
What is a board trustee?
School board trustees are locally-elected representatives of the public, and they are the community's advocate for public education. Board trustees are elected for all 4 Ottawa school boards to make policy and budget decisions.
What do board trustees do?
Why should students care?
The decisions of the Board of Trustees affects students directly.
School board trustees vote on issues that directly affect the student experience, such as the School Resource Officers Program, and the implementation of public health measures in schools.
Trustees have an obligation to act in the students' interests, beyond using the position of trustee as a mechanism to bolster their political careers.
When voting for trustees, ask them:
How can students get involved?
Youth friendly organization like Horizon Ottawa are pushing to elect pro-student trustees who are in favour of anti-SRO and pro-education reform. Consider getting involved.
The RSU will be enduring a slate of pro-student board trustee candidates. Consider volunteering for a pro-student candidate.
Consider running for trustee! If you are 18 years old by October 2022, you are eligible to run in the Board Trustee elections! We need more youth voices on the Board!
More information on all of these points will be provided at an event on April 16th.
We're calling for the OCDSB to freeze Semester 1 grades. For public and mental health.
Recently, the TDSB, WRDSB and others implemented a mark freeze for all evaluations from December 17th to the end of the semester, such that marks can increase but not decrease. We believe that the OCDSB needs to implement this same measure of “freezing marks” for the sake of its constituents and of public health.
Therefore, we are calling on the OCDSB to implement an identical mark freezing policy.
Why? Absenteeism. This is especially prominent in more COVID-vulnerable communities.
Online learning disproportionately affected those who might have learning disabilities or need IEPs
More COVID-19 cases means that there is a higher likely hood of staff shortages.
