Students at Peel high school told to reselect Grade 12 courses because of Doug Ford’s cutbacks. The dramatic step came as Cawthra Park Secondary School scrambles to change timetables amid the loss of an expected five teachers & 30 course sections.

“When [they] said we have to reselect our courses, I heard a collective gasp throughout the room,” “Hands were shooting up all around the room. Kids were fidgeting, squirming in their seats. The collective anxiety was overwhelming.”

Just moved a notice of motion at ⁦⁩ around Ontario Public Health cuts and their effect on student nutrition. I asked OCSTA to write a letter expressing our concerns with cuts that will affect student achievement. The room was supportive.

Either Mr. Goldstein doesn't care to cite his sources to prove that these statements are factually incorrect, or he doesn't care that they are factually incorrect. Quite troubling for someone claiming to be a "journalist". Let's examine these claims, and . 1/n

Today's GSN announcement comes 33 days later than last year's. This has caused no end of headaches for school boards, who are required by collective agreements to calculate their staffing before now. Something else the govt doesn't get.

ICYMI: Over 800 UGDSB teachers were notified that the board may transfer them from "one municipality to another". This is a result of the the B07 memo from the Ministry of Education entitled "A New Vision for Education". This is unprecedented in the board.

I was one of many GEDSB teachers given a redundancy letter today. What bothers me most is the detrimental impact this has on school communities. Huge displacement, loss of rapport with Ss, big hit on Ts mental health, less course development, etc...

This is heartbreaking. The impact of these callous cuts on students is becoming more and more apparent. I know so many young people who are already anxious, and now dealing with this! Reverse your decision !

We’ve all been awaiting the numbers. The next step is for boards to try to make the dollars work with the student needs in each school and board.

Every region of Ontario is affected. Even here in Huron County, in back yard. Schools worried students won’t have courses they need to graduate, let alone the ones they WANT to take.
