Parents of York student protest strike on Facebook, blog

January 13, 2009

York University students are not the only ones turning to the Internet to vent their frustration over the ongoing strike by teaching assistants and contract faculty. The parents of a second-year York student recently set up a Facebook group called "YorkParents" and an accompanying blog to protest the strike and urge other parents to become vocal in supporting students. The group encourages high school seniors and their parents to reconsider choosing York for post-secondary studies.
