Stand up for publicly funded education.

The Ford government is failing students.

All students deserve a learning environment where they can succeed. Ontario’s publicly funded schools need real action and investment.

SIGN UP

Ontario’s publicly funded schools are world-class, but the Ford government’s reckless cuts, focus on privatization, and refusal to work collaboratively with educators continues to threaten student success.

Learn the facts about what’s happening in our classrooms, and what students and educators need to succeed.

Take Action

Stop School Cuts

The Ford government continues to cut publicly funded education. More cuts mean larger class sizes, less help and attention for students, and no mental health or learning recovery supports. Students can’t afford more cuts.

Say No to Hybrid Learning

The Ford government’s hybrid learning model fails students. When teachers are forced to split their attention between students in-class and online, it compromises the learning experience for everyone.

Demand a Real Learning Recovery Plan

The Ford government refuses to address student learning loss. Ontario students need a real learning recovery plan, with investments in mental health and well-being, more professional services, and smaller class sizes, so students get the individual support they deserve.  

Challenges and Opportunities

Consultation and Collaboration

Schools work best when there is meaningful collaboration between the government and teachers. The Ford government needs to listen to frontline educators and make decisions based on evidence, not ideology.

Standardized Testing

Standardized testing negatively impacts students’ health and well-being, and is not the best indicator of student learning and knowledge. Teachers know their students and are the best at assessing and supporting their learning.

Destreaming

Efforts to eliminate racism, discrimination, and all systemic barriers in our schools are critical, but the Ford government’s destreaming plan is oversimplified, underfunded, and rushed, jeopardizing its success.

Online Learning

Students learn best when they are in class, with a dedicated teacher, and can interact with their peers. Online learning may work in some circumstances, but it is not for all students. And it can disadvantage many students.
