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.
TO THE LEGISLATIVE ASSEMBLY OF ONTARIO:
Whereas Doug Ford’s new education scheme seeks to dramatically increase class sizes starting in Grade 4;
Whereas the changes will mean thousands fewer teachers and education workers and less help for every student;
Whereas secondary students will now be forced to take at least four of their classes online with as many as 35 students in each course;
Whereas kids in Ontario deserve more opportunities, not fewer;
We the undersigned petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to: demand that the Ontario government halt the cuts to classrooms and invest to strengthen public education in Ontario.
