A student leader in Toronto’s student government says she will fight to retain her students in classes as a way to reduce the number of assaults.
In a Facebook post Tuesday, the Association of Students with Disabilities Students said the union will hold a strike Monday to oppose the city’s plan to eliminate the requirement for teachers to have disabilities.
“As a student and a leader of the Association, I know what it’s like to feel helpless when you’re under assault,” the post read.
“As a result, I will fight for our students to have a safe, inclusive environment.”
It’s not the first time a student union has come under fire for defending the rights of students.
Last month, a group of students and union officials protested against a plan to close all of the citys high schools to new students and faculty.
