Doug Ford is looking to increase class sizes and scrap full-day kindergarten.
Dear Premier Ford,
CC: Education Minister Lisa Thompson
I am deeply concerned about the government’s proposal to increase class sizes for Ontario’s youngest students. Recent media reports that the government is considering changing, or even outright cancelling, Ontario’s highly successful, full-day, early-learning program for kindergarten students are equally disturbing.
Fewer adults and more students in the classroom means crowded, unmanageable classes, fewer teachers and education assistants to help children with special needs, less inclusion for children with exceptionalities, and less individual help for students.
