I am one of 193 teachers that lost their permanent job today. (At eight months pregnant, no less.) I am devastated for my colleagues, myself, but mostly my students. Because my students are incredible beyond words, and deserve much better than this.

At the end of the day, it really comes down to this: Do you think education is an expense or an investment?

I'm just going to leave this here... Minister of Education forgets to thank teachers at FIRST Robotics Competition. Good thing a student reminded her.

. I was declared surplus from my board today, along with 193 secondary teachers in Peel. Every single person that lost their job today will have NO job in September. Am I mistaken or did you and say no job losses??

Not apologizing for the salary I make. During hard times, I’d be willing to negotiate a pay increase of inflation but this isn’t 2008. Stock market is at a record high. Do you think ppl in the private sector are frozen? We earn our salary every day.

NDP Leader : This morning more classroom cuts were announced: The Peel School Board laid off 120 teachers at the end of the school year. And in Peterborough teachers say they’re expecting 55 fewer jobs. Is the Ford govt still claiming no cuts?

Don't know a single teacher who's concerned about compensation right now. We're concerned about the kind of education we can provide for our students. Don't try and re-label this as something it's not.

That's rich coming from the guy absent 61% of the time in the provincial legislature & 53% while at city hall, who earns $208000, and sits in legislature for 90-100 days of the year. Don't pull this nonsense on the citizens and poor Ontarians.

One more time for those in the back. Education is a fundamental component of a high-functioning society. Health care is a fundamental component of a high-functioning society. Dollar beers are not. Tailgate parties are not. How did Ontario get our priorities so wrong?

First came after affordable education in universities and colleges. Then he made cuts to our schools. Now he's attacking our libraries. Is there any kind of learning he's willing to support?

“There will be no involuntary Job losses as a result of our education plan,” says- but hundreds of FT teachers are being told they could lose their jobs & become part-time, supply teachers- & Thompson wouldn’t say if that’s a job loss.

Today, I asked the Premier about the 369 teachers that were issued layoff notices at the Peel District School Board- the Premier responded by congratulating his friends in Alberta instead.

I'm 1 of the 193 that received a letter. Such a heart breaking day to be told we would no longer have jobs in Sept. It's scary times for teachers and students who are looking at what is to come in education. & I hope you're listening.
