Ontario Ministry of Education: Protect specialized educational programs for children with severe learning challenges from drastic budget cuts being made by TCDSB.

This petition had 91 supporters


The deep budgets cuts being made by the Toronto Catholic District School Board stand to threaten the right for children with severe learning challenges to receive the education they deserve

For elementary school children facing severe learning challenges the Specialized Education programs such as Intensive Support Program, Junior Literacy Intervention Programs and 5th Block Reading Program represent their only hope to receive an education in an effective and supportive learning environment.

The fact is that these children possess amazing potential that has been limited by specific challenges. They can learn; it’s just that they are unable to learn in a traditional classroom environment. 

Fortunately, these programs represent a lifeline for these students and have been hugely successful in unlocking their true potential. Students who attend these programs typically reintegrate back into the classrooms they left and return as academic equals to their peers. They continue their education with confidence having overcome their challenges and from exceeding everyone's expectations. 

Please sign your name to this petition and share it with others who also believe that ALL children deserve an education and an opportunity to meet their full potential. 

Thank you for taking a stand for these critical programs and helping to provide a future of opportunities for these vulnerable students.
