Exit Interview 2014
Transcript of Exit Interview 2014
To demonstrate what we have learned during our grade 8 year at Morning Star Middle School in all the subjects.
Do we have second class citizens in Canada?
what did i learn about the role of systems?
I learned that the justice system in most developing countries has a lot of faults. Through the gap project i learned that there are women in congo that have been sexually assaulted by men in power (police, military officials) and because those men have power, the justice system doesn't recognize those men as criminals.I also learned that most governments care more about their economy than they do about their people, for example some countries have started using water as a commodity rather than thinking of water as a basic human right.
Why am i lucky to be a Canadian?
I am lucky to be a canadian because here in Canada we have many of our basic needs. we have access to clean water, food, health care and education almost 100% of the time. I am also lucky to be a canadian because of the different systems we have.Our justice system is good, we have many more rights than people in developing countries.

Yes, we do have second class citizens in Canada, even though it may be surprising considering Canada is a developed country.the definition of a second class citizen is a citizen, usually part of a minority group, who is not given social, political or economical benefits. this definition defines one very important cultural group here in Canada, known as the aboriginals or First nations.Many aboriginals are not given some benefits that the non-aboriginal citizens are given. Here in Ontario many aboriginals live on toxic reserves and do not get free education or health care. Aboriginal children lack access to educational resources because first nation schools receive less funding than provincial schools and they get no money for libraries, computers and extra curriculars. Not only that, but many aboriginal families live in 3rd world conditions, with no running or clean drinking water in their homes. Also the percent of aboriginal women who are abused, murdered or go missing is much higher than non-aboriginal women. these third world conditions are present in our own backyards, in our own backyards, in places like Attawapiskat. Aboriginals are treated un equally compared to others, so yes, in conclusion canada does in fact have second class citizens.
What did I learn about the challenges present I world?
I learned that their are problems much greater than my own, happening around the world. In places that don't have as many resources as I do. I also learned to stop taking the little things in my life for granted because there are people in the world that are fighting for those things. I also learned that there are many more problems present than the media shows.
How has what i learned taught me to empathize with other people?
what i learned in the past three years is that people are different by their personality. I learned is how peoples point of view was different and how we should accept their thoughts and the way they think. I also realized people work differently at our school. Everybody is not the same, but no one is better than anyone else.
