Just how bad are the new "Alabama"-style education reforms being forced onto Ontario high school students by Premier Doug Ford?

Well, even Education Minister Stephen Lecce seems unable to point to any concrete educational benefits for students as a result of the plan.

Ford's government wants to eliminate several thousand jobs for human teachers and replace them with cheap American-style online learning courses.

Educators call Ford's plan "ludicrous," noting it has no educational benefits and the Republican states Ford has pointed to as models are already reversing course after they saw student test scores plummet.
