  • The government failing to listen to Ontario teachers

KITCHENER — MPP Aislinn Clancy and MPP Mike Schreiner released the following statement in response to news that the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) has launched a labour board complaint over the 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 government’s most recent memo should have done more to take their concerns into account.

We 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.”
