Removal of the second vet teacher would limit access to the program for many students who have completed a portion already and who would like this experience in the future. Also with larger class sizes, this would further limit the students access to knowledge and an individualized learning experience.

Decreasing to one veterinary class has multiple disadvantages. Upon removal of the second vet class, the remaining vet class will remain assigned to one teacher who will remain teaching separate agriculture and vet classes. Thus getting rid of the additional vet classes currently in place and limiting access for current students pursuing their certification as well as new students interested in pursuing their certification. Ultimately this may create larger class sizes. Larger class sizes result in less individualized attention from the teacher. Larger classrooms lend themselves to a more disruptive environment because there are more students to manage.
Keeping the current vet classes in place would allow for more access to the program for current and new students pursuing their certification. It would allow for smaller class sizes with a more individualized learning experience . The smaller class sizes would be more manageable with less chance for disruptive behavior.
This petition was organized and created by current and past students of both vet classes. These students are very passionate about keeping both classes in place. The students hope to have their voices heard and change the administration’s decision to remove the second vet class for 2021/2022 school year.
