SJCS Says No 2019 started this petition to The Ontario Legislative Assembly

As you may have already known, Doug Ford has been planning to cut most of our students education. If these cuts happen, teachers will be laid off, class sizes will increase, 4 online course will be mandatory, etc. We as students shouldn't be suffering with these things. How will we have a better future? We as teachers take our jobs seriously, we shouldn't be laid off. All of us matters the most. Without our fundings for education, we'd be struggling far more than usual. It has been said that the provincial government has announced over $1 billion in funding cuts to our schools, which will result in:

  •  much larger class sizes in Grades 4 - 12
  • significantly less support for our most vulnerable students including those with disabilities, special needs, and English language learners
  • forcing secondary students to take 4 online courses
  • further deterioration of school already in need of repair

We, the undersigned, petition the Legislature of Ontario to:

1. Immediately half and reverse all funding cuts to our public education system; Eliminate mandatory e-learning

2. Amend the education funding formula to: increase program and resouce support for special education; lower class sizes in Kindergarten and Grades 4 - 12; and increase school boards' capacity to deliver fronr-line services by paraprofessionals

3. Support the elephant of an Ontario-wide "State of Good Repair Standard"for all publicly funded schools so that these public assets are safe, healthy, well-maintained buildings that provide environments conducive to learning and working.

4. Establish an evidence-based review of the education funding formula every five years to determine its effectiveness in supporting high quality public education.

If you believe in the future of our students and teachers, now's the chance to put an end to these education cuts and renew the education in our schools.
