Ford government failing to listen to Ontario teachers

May 23, 2024

KITCHENER — Ontario Greens Deputy Leader Aislinn Clancy released the following statement in response to news that the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) has launched a labour board complaint over the Ford government’s recent program and policy memorandum.

“Ontario’s ministry of education has a responsibility to work with our teachers’ unions to ensure that its policy decisions meet the needs of students and staff alike.

ETFO members have been sounding the alarm about increasing violence in our schools for years now, and the Ford government’s most recent memo should have done more to take their concerns into account.

I urge the government to work in partnership with our teachers’ unions to ensure that our education programs and policies do not leave our kids, teachers or parents behind.”
