And if Ontario's Premier gets his way, experts warn online courses offered through Ford's new eLearning plan could become unmanageable for students and teachers.

Ford's government wants to make big cuts to education by eliminating thousands of jobs for human teachers and replacing them with cheap, online courses that will be modelled after the education system experiments in Alabama.

Studies of the province's existing eLearning efforts have not been especially promising. One study of eLearning in Toronto schools found students were disengaged from their learning. Another poll found 60% of students across the province had trouble learning online and felt their learning style wasn't supported by the modules. Many of those students polled also reported they had difficulty communicating with their instructors.
