Updates to changes to Ontario education funding
In the spring of 2019, the Ministry of Education announced significant changes to education funding and policy.
The changes included:
- cuts to funding for class size so that it would be based on a ratio of 28 students per secondary school teacher – up from 22 to 1.
- changes to funding for grades 4 to 8, so that it would be based on a ratio of 24.5 students per elementary school teacher – up from 23.84.
- mandating that students take 4 courses by e-Learning in order to graduate.
- withholding the Local Priorities Fund
Since the spring, some changes to the announcements have been made.
