Steep job losses to come after education overhaul
“Increasing class sizes will lead to job cuts and fewer teachers to educate students.
The Minister’s promise of no job losses does not square with a dramatic 27% increase in class sizes for grades 9-12. When this government promises job security, the opposite tends to happen.
The Ontario Secondary School Teachers Federation estimates increasing class sizes will cause a loss of 5,500 positions in Ontario high schools.
How will this move benefit students or increase education quality?”
