Ford gov’t back-to-school plan jeopardizes students’ safety, say teachers’ unions
Funding in plan falls far short of $3B estimated for safe and healthy return to school

The Ford government is jeopardizing the safety of students, educators and all Ontarians by severely underfunding a safe return to school this September, say Ontario’s four major education unions.

The Association des enseignantes et des enseignants franco-ontariens (AEFO), the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO), the Ontario English Catholic Teachers’ Association (OECTA) and the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF/FEESO) represent 200,000 teachers and education workers who are expected to return to school under the government’s plan.

“This plan and the funding to support it falls far short of the $3 billion that has been estimated for a safe and healthy return to school,” said AEFO president Rémi Sabourin, in a press release.

“More funds are needed for enhanced cleaning and disinfecting of schools, additional custodial staff, masks and personal protective equipment, health and safety training for staff and additional educators.”

“While the announcement of new funding is welcome, it’s quite clear that the Ford government isn’t willing to pay the full cost of ensuring the safety of students and educators in September,” said ETFO president Sam Hammond.


“The premier promised Ontarians that he ‘will spare no expense’ to keep people safe, yet he and Education Minister Stephen Lecce are betraying that promise to students, educators, parents and communities with this ill-prepared plan.”

“Educators want to be back with their students, but want to do so safely,” says OECTA president Liz Stuart. “The Ford model does not provide for the safe physical distancing that is expected in the rest of the province, and that health experts around the world have recommended to prevent the spread of COVID-19. It also does not provide the necessary additional resources to support distance learning for those families who elect to keep their children home, or to support students in schools who have unique learning needs. Ontario’s recovery depends on a safe return to school, and this plan does not provide it.”

“This plan is an insult to every student, every parent and every educator in the province of Ontario,” said OSSTF/FEESO president Harvey Bischof. “The Ford government has had four months to come up with a serious strategy – four months to consult, to plan, and to allocate appropriate resources to ensure a safe return to school in September. It’s clear from today’s announcement that they have squandered that time. In the midst of a global pandemic, Ontario deserves more than yet another half-baked scheme from Doug Ford and Stephen Lecce.”

after 5 months much of this group did "virtually" nothing. Now they want the smaller class sizes, more help, and to work less. But it's all for the kids. I don't hear nurses, doctors or grocery store workers complaining.

Less work, no accountability, and more pay. Their position is always the same.

They would have kids not return to the classroom at all if they could have their way. Always hiding behind the "it's for the kids" excuse.

Not allowed to have 20 kids on a field outside but 30+ in a classroom, no problem. Can't have it both ways people.

You are aware that ends at grade 3,correct? In Kindergarten, no cap, in Junior, no cap. Very common to have classes larger than 30.


K

Primary classes (1-3).have a maximum of 20. Junior classes 4-6 have no limit. Kindergarten has no limit unless there is no DECE then it is 15. Learn your facts.

Unions complaining again. Any reasonable suggestions? Why not try a strike. We all saw how well the last one went.

strike went well for teachers, actually.


SR

Of course it did. They always do because that's who the strikes help. I thought it was suppose to be good for the kids though?

It’s just kids we can always make more of them

A reasonable suggestion... at least until Christmas and we know more...
... kids should be social distancing with staggered on site and at home learning as per the suggestion in June. Smaller class sizes, less school bus capacity.
Sick Kids and experts did NOT recommend back to school without social distancing.


WT
What the..... 17 h
Cancel unnecessary classes

Exactly. Medical and Child development experts did not recommend back to school without social distancing which is why cohorts will be created. Every student will be in contact with his classroom peers only, at all times, which includes lunch and recesses. Do the math. I think we need to give kids more credit in learning, understanding and applying new procedures, as well as in regard to their ability to adapt. Perhaps some adults need to learn these things. Parents don`t need one more stress factor with people who refuse to adapt. Negative attitudes SINK the possible positive destination, which is and must remain, the children`s happiness and OVERALL well being. Where`s the faith? Waiting till after Xmas is just another way of saying "I don`t wanna do it". Then make your decision and stay home. Paid or not. Children`s faces will light up seeing their peers in person, and that IS RECOMMENDED.
Here`s a good read

Crazy to think that bars, restaurants, and other stores have more precautions in place than schools.
