No Cuts to Education

Tell the Ford Government to Protect and Enhance Public Education in Ontario

The Ford Government has clearly signaled its intent to cut the Ontario budget “in the order of four cents on the dollar.” For our public education system, that’s a cut of over $1 billion.

Page three of the Ministry of Education’s 2019–20 Education Funding Guide highlights the Ford Government’s intention to make deep cuts.

We are calling on the Ford Government to make NO CUTS TO PUBLIC EDUCATION. Cuts will lead to fewer teachers and support staff in our schools, reducing services and programs for students. Privatization and contracting out of public education would move us closer to a U.S.–style system that has sent billions in public funds into the pockets of private corporations.

We need to enhance and improve funding for public education to ensure all students, from kindergarten through to post-secondary, get the support and services they need to be successful.

Let’s work together to improve our world-recognized publicly funded education system. We can’t do that by cutting it.
