The Chronicleof Higher Ed: Student Strike in Quebec Ends, but Some Instructors Plan a Walkout Today "Although all the striking university and college students in Quebec have agreed to return to their classes today, a number of junior colleges will be closed this morning because instructors plan to march on the premier's office to protest their lack of a contract. Faculty members at most junior and community colleges will also take part in rotating strikes until the end of the academic year. They have been without a contract since 2003. Other grievances include their growing class sizes and lack of resources. Most students in Quebec go through the college system before enrolling at a university."
