There are currently 25.68% of Ontario schools with confirmed Covid-19 cases. This accounts for 1,240 schools out of 4,828 schools in Ontario. Read about it here: https://www.ontario.ca/page/covid-19-cases-schools-and-child-care-centres

Rather than getting teachers and education workers vaccinated, the Ontario government is trying to make online learning a permanent "solution". This is because they want to cut funds from our education system. The Ontario government has sent students and staff back to school with 30 students in one classroom that barely have any space for physical distancing when the government itself has been advocating for physical distancing since the pandemic started. The current situation going on in our education system is bizarre and shows the lack of care the government is showing for our students, teachers and community. Our teachers and education workers who work in public and private school as well as child care centres deserve to be prioritized for Covid-19 vaccinations - they have put their health and safety of themselves as well as their families at risk to cater to our students and keep them in school. Covid-19 cases are continuing to surge in Ontario schools and as of tomorrow April 6th, 2021, the government has ordered all schools in Peel to close AGAIN for two weeks.

Students, especially young children need a stable environment and the closing and reopening of schools constantly can have a negative impact on their well-being. Many students require hands-on learning in order to be successful which cannot be provided if schools remain shut and our teachers get sick! VACCINATE TEACHERS AND EDUCATION WORKERS NOW!
