Text of the petition WHEREAS we must respond to the needs of all students in the Quebec school system, those who have special needs, and those who do not; WHEREAS classes should have a balanced composition, reflecting the image of society; WHEREAS each student should be evaluated according to his or her needs and abilities, and should receive appropriate and immediate services when experiencing difficulties in school; WHEREAS all students are equal and have a right to services when they need them, and not simply when they are available; WHEREAS the government has made numerous and repeated promises to improve this situation; We, the undersigned, ask the National Assembly to take the means necessary to carry out as quickly as possible the motion passed unanimously on October 27, and to respect its own promises in this regard. We therefore demand that the government take the necessary steps to balance classes, in order to meet the needs of all students, those with handicaps, with behaviour problems or learning disabilities; and that all stakeholders in education engage in resolving this issue, including the government of Quebec, which must supply a framework and adequate resources.
