Years of fiscal mismanagement and lack of oversight are to blame for the Toronto school board's multimillion-dollar budget shortfall, not a round of funding cuts by the province, Premier Doug Ford said Tuesday.

The Toronto District School Board has said it plans to cut some jobs, programs and services in order to close a $67-million funding gap — $42 million of which it attributes to recent cuts by the Progressive Conservative government.

Ford disputed those figures, calling their release premature and "absolutely reckless," adding that school boards in the province were "out of control."
