Today I’m standing with students, parents, and education workers rallying against Doug Ford’s cuts to public education.
 
 #rally4education #cupe #cutshurtkids #powerofpubliceducation #osbcu.

————————————————————————————–

As parents, education workers, and concerned community members we are standing together to defend public education and the learning conditions that all students need!

The Conservative government is proposing cuts that will be damaging to all students and will particularly hurt students with special needs. Our message is simple: Our education system needs investment not cuts.

The government has proposed to:
• Increase class size in grades 4-8 and in high school;
• Download its obligation to support children with autism onto public schools without adequate funding; and
• Reduce the number of teachers and support staff in schools across the province.

And it is even considering changing the existing model of Full-Day Kindergarten, which currently includes a teacher and an early childhood educator.

Join with us to send the Conservative government a strong message that Cuts Hurt Kids!

This joint action is organized and endorsed by: AEFO, CUPE-Ontario, ETFO, OSBCU, OECTA, OSSTF and a growing list of parent and community groups, other labour unions and organizations.
