According to Ontario's Government for the People, when class sizes swell by more than 27 per cent, that's just swell. And when face-to-face teaching is replaced by faceless e-learning — with one supersized online lesson made mandatory in every year of high school (unlike in other jurisdictions) — that's progress.

Perhaps you just didn't realize this had been officially reclassified as good news, not bad.

Possibly you'd already heard the big news that average classes will jump up to 28 students in the upper years (on average, meaning that many classes will head toward 40 to accommodate smaller specialized classes, which might also be sacrificed).
