The NDP are calling on the Ford government to "reign in" Ontario private schools after an CityNews report found a handful of GTA schools were faking grades in exchange for cash.

Alice Boyle, a recently retired public school teacher in York Region who brought her concerns to CityNews, said things such as falsifying report cards, inflating marks and faking attendance records have been going on for years and claims the Ministry of Education isn't doing enough to stop it.

"There's a credit mill around here, you just walk over, plunk down your $600-$800 and sometimes, depending the school, they may ask you what mark you need for what course and you don't have to go to a class." she said.
