Ontario's Education Minister Lets Slip His New Plan Could Eliminate Secure Jobs for Special Educators
Ontario Education Minister Stephen Lecce confirmed during a radio interview that his "Supports for Students Fund" is really a ploy to replace secure unionized teacher jobs with precarious, non-unionized positions.
Last week, Lecce presented the Support for Students Fund as a replacement of the previous Local Priorities Fund, which covers the salaries of special education staff.
Lecce claims the funding will be "equivalent" to the older fund, except the amount pledged is nearly one hundred million dollars lower.
