Ensure safe drinking water in our schools. Fix the Education Funding Formula

Ontario’s broken Education Funding Formula is threatening the quality of drinking water in our schools.

  • Schools are failing lead tests.
  • Teachers are reporting rusted drinking fountains and faucets that run yellow.
  • Stickers are being affixed to taps/sinks advising that water is not for consumption.
  • School-level water safety maps, indicating which sources are potable, have been made difficult for the public to access.

This is a growing health concern that must be addressed to ensure the safety of all students, teachers, and community groups that use our schools.

Toronto’s schools are aging and rapidly falling into disrepair, as the TDSB’s $4 billion repair backlog only continues to grow.

Without sufficient provincial funding, without a fair Education Funding Formula, the Board can only finance stop-gap measures to address this issue, potentially leaving fewer and fewer safe drinking water sources.

Help send the message that all our students deserve access to clean and safe drinking water.
