Full-day Kindergarten, with two educators, has made an incredible difference to early learning. It’s quite shocking that the Ontario PC Govt is seeking to change it.

Ford’s cuts to classrooms will mean fewer options/support for students. Do we really want to live in a province where the only kids who can learn music, or get extra support when they struggle, are those whose parents can afford it?

Let’s break this down. Toronto Catholic DSB trustees just passed a motion charging teachers $10 day for parking. That’s about a $1,900/yr cut in pay for educators as boards are forced to make up for provincial funding cuts. What’s next?

The GECDSB is the latest casualty in a string of Ontario school boards hit hard by the Ford government’s cuts to education - cuts that will result in 70 full-time jobs lost in Windsor-Essex. Children deserve more support and opportunity in school, not less.

107 jobs lost minimum, including 70 full-time teachers in Windsor.... students will suffer. What was that you said, ? | CBC News

(Important Point here: it’s not only teachers that support students... the loss of caring adults in many different roles in our schools is a critical issue for student success in education)

Tonight, we learned the number of high school sections (classes) disappearing in the 2019/20 school year. While there will be 176 more students, there will be 259 fewer sections available. Staff attribute 199 of these losses to class sizes and 60 to other funding cuts.

Tonight, after 6 months of deliberation & listening to community voices, Trustees passed our 2019-2020 operating budget Nobody, absolutely nobody, wants to making these cuts. This is at the feet of a provincial government which doesn’t value public education.

Education workers in Ontario have worked hard to improve education outcomes for our students. The numbers show the benefits of that work to Ontario and the economy. We all benefit when we invest in education.

Things to note: 1. staff have done an amazing job of limiting the damage as much as possible 2. Still, these cuts will hurt students and staff 3. If we weren't a growing Board these cuts would have had a much bigger impact 4. The real impact will be felt next year

I had an amazing year as my first year as Vice Principal in . Reflecting on my year, the most important thing I learned (& had a feeling before) is the importance of RELATIONSHIPS & those Personal Leadership Resources from the OLF!

Interesting article. Beyond the drama, this tells us that Ontarians’ opposition to ’s cuts is working. Keep up the fight. Keep calling, emailing, keep getting those petitions signed. They are feeling the pressure.

“there is no evidence anywhere that says cutting money from education is the best route to promote student success...economists agree that investment in education — from ECE through to PSE — pays off at least tenfold.”
