Doug Ford's supply side economics creating upheaval in the classroom - 2020-01-28
Jonathan LeFresne graduated from teacher's college in 2013. He worked for a private school for one year before being hired by the Toronto District School Board (TDSB) as a high school supply teacher. LeFresne is qualified to teach English, history, ESL, guidance and social sciences.
Every day for four years, LeFresne got up at 6:30 am to log into the daily supply list online. Sometimes he'd have to wait for upward of an hour and a half for a job. The teaching jobs offered were sometimes not in his area of expertise and could be anywhere in the school board area. This is the reality for short-term occasional teachers working in Ontario.
