The Ontario government plans to phase out 3,475 teaching positions over the next four years – for an estimated annual saving of $292-million by the fourth year, according to memos sent to school board directors.

The job cuts would work out to an average of less than one teaching position for each of the province's almost 5,000 publicly funded elementary and secondary schools.

The figures in the memos, which were sent on Wednesday, are the first to outline how many positions the education ministry says will be lost through attrition as a result of changes to class sizes in some elementary grades and in high schools.
