WE ASKED:

What is your hot but­ton topic you want ad­dressed dur­ing this elec­tion?

Mar­cus Gart­land Louis­bourg

“It’s ex­tremely im­por­tant to fo­cus on ed­u­ca­tion in to­day’s youth. I think good learn­ing spa­ces for the stu­dents is needed. The teach­ers also need a wel­com­ing sur­round­ing. Hav­ing a wel­com­ing sur­round­ing is vi­tal for teach­ers to do their jobs, which also makes it im­por­tant to stu­dents.”

Chris­tine Ye­ung Syd­ney

“As some­body who is a med­i­cal lab tech work­ing in the hospi­tal, I think the (new) leader needs to have a re­ally good plan they will im­ple­ment on how they will be at­tract­ing new peo­ple to come work in health care. We need a lot of nurses, we need a lot of med lab techs and it seems that right now Cape Bre­ton schools haven’t been able to meet that de­mand. So the in­cen­tives need to be there, and there needs to be some con­crete plan.”

John James Mac­Neil Syd­ney

“I think it’s ed­u­ca­tion for the young peo­ple, in the class­room. I think it’s poorly strate­gized. I think teach­ers are frustrated and they’re angry. But I think they don’t know and I think the di­rec­tives are poor and not wise. And they don’t con­sider the sa­cred­ness of learn­ing for ev­ery child. And ev­ery child is dif­fer­ent.”

Bre­anna Ho­gan Howie Cen­tre

“Work to rule re­ally messed things up this year. It was pretty bad for the grads. I would like to see teach­ers be­ing treated bet­ter. Our en­tire ed­u­ca­tion sys­tem is de­pen­dent upon the teach­ers and if they aren’t get­ting the re­spect that they de­serve, how can they do their job prop­erly and give us the ed­u­ca­tion that we need?”
