With the 2012 budget cuts surely impacting our lives in the coming years, the question is: How much does our younger generation have to suffer, and why? Have our children become less important?
We constantly talk about wanting our children to grow up and be contributing members of society, but if our government limits our resources, then the future of Canada will consist of adults who have less ambition and substance for lack of resources for training and development in our adolescence.
As a Grade 11 student, I have witnessed a decline in our activities and programs due to budget cuts, which significantly affect my quality of education. If we can't provide our students with the best resources, how can we fulfil their potential and our nation reap the fruits?
