Since parents couldn't bring their kids to school today (September 2), some of them showed up at their local MLA's office instead.
"MLA Playdate" protests are being organized around the province, and they're meant to continue happening until the teachers' strike is resolved and schools open.
"Parents want both their kids back in school and for their kids to get a quality public education," a media advisory states. "They are concerned about the impacts on their children and families which are both short and long term. Families won’t be able to pay the bills because a parent is unable to work while their children are not in school learning. Kids who are all ready falling through the cracks from inadequate support for teachers in classrooms and families that can, and do, re-mortgage their houses to get it."
Here's a few tweeted photos of today's playdate protests.
