Ontario's Ministry of Education did not spend hundreds of millions of dollars that was officially budgeted for Ontario schools

New data released by the Government of Ontario shows Doug Ford did not spend hundreds of millions of dollars officially budgeted for schools and ended up spending $900 million less on education last year than it did the year before.

According to a report released Tuesday by the Financial Accountability Office, Ontario's education system saw a $900 million reduction in spending that was "largely" attributed to "lower net spending on COVID-19-related programs," despite higher rates of COVID-19 infection across the province in 2021.
