Re V.S.B Cancellation of Outreach Programs from Florence Nightingale Adult Education Outreach Class
It is too easy
to cancel this class
because no one hears us.
We are students
at the Florence Nightingale Elementary School
Outreach Class. For the past 20 years,
this class has been helping
parents in East Vancouver
to learn the language skills that are so necessary
for life in Vancouver.
We know how important
education is for people and the whole country. We are afraid that
in B.C. education is no longer respected. We are very sad and upset to learn that the School Board is
about to cancel our class because the B.C. government
is cutting the education budget.
This is very bad news for us and for the whole city. Studying basic literacy
is necessary for us to become part of the community. With the help of our class, we can become active citizens who can contribute to our city, our country and our democracy.
Cutting our class puts a barrier in front of us. It is very difficult for us to make our voices heard. It is too easy to cancel this class because no one hears us.
Please hear us. Please help us. Please save our class.
