Education

Stop Cuts to Education: The Ontario government is cutting $250 Million away from children's classrooms every year - over four years this takes $1 billion away from students. With thousands fewer teachers, bigger class sizes and less help for kids we must stop these changes. Cutting the budget on the backs of children is wrong.

Stop the Cuts to Full Day Kindergarten: direct the Ford government to take full-day kindergarten off the chopping block, oppose any plan to increase class sizes, and instead listen to families and education workers by making things better for kids, not worse.

Implement Truth and Reconciliation Commission Recommendations: create curriculum for each academic year on residential schools, Treaties, and Aboriginal peoples’ historical and contemporary contributions to Canada.

Protect Ontario's Sexual Health Curriculum: direct the Ministry of Education to continue the use of the Ontario 2015 Health and Physical Education curriculum in Ontario schools.
