UQAM education students continue to strike for changes to teacher placements

Thousands of Université du Québec à Montréal students have been on strike for almost a month and are calling for changes to education placements, reports La Presse. The students are demanding action against harassment, the introduction of a salary, accommodations for parent students, reduced workloads, and limits on travel to placements. An education student association has also called for the university to establish a committee to assess transfer requests in cases of harassment. Teacher Simon Landry expressed his agreement with the students’ calls related to harassment and salary, but told the Journal de Montréal that students must be prepared to take on a large workload without accommodations when they start their careers.
