A warning for Ford government: modernizing education isn't easy when cutting funding - 2019-06-17
A new report from an education advocacy group warns the Ford government against reducing funding while aiming to modernize the school system.
People For Education will release its annual report Monday, the group's first since Premier Doug Ford took office.
The report takes note of the government's plans for reforming schools, announced in March, including a renewed math strategy and more attention to skills that prepare students for jobs.
"However, at the same time, the government reduced funding for the teachers and other supports that will play a key role in this modernization," says the report.
