A children crying silently

Consideration has to be given to the students who stand mostly to be affected by the long process of the Alexandra issue. One of the more important voices of this issue has not yet been represented or even heard: that of the students.
It is my desire to know from them, since it is going to affect them in the long run, how do they feel about the matter. Our children must sit at the table in matters that affect them if we are going to help shape their minds for the future.
Our Government must review the process of contractual agreements with our teachers, so they cannot hold our young children to ransom in the event of a strike.
I do not know if teachers understand fully the pivotal role they play in our children’s lives and future. Even the very dress of some of our teachers leaves much to be desired far less their behaviour.
In all my school life, and I had quite a few years at that, I never heard of a teacher going on strike. They were always well attired, well groomed.
This Alexandra issue should not be taken lightly; this may be a wake-up call to us all to so fashion our ways that such a debacle never again occurs.
And let us not forget the silent cries of our children.
