08 Apr Provincial memo lays out plan to cut 3,475 Ontario teaching positions in 4 years
A provincial memo obtained by CBC Toronto lays out the Ford government’s plans to cut thousands of full-time teaching positions in Ontario beginning this fall.
In the 2019-2020 school year, the memo says, there will be 1,558 fewer full-time teachers in Ontario. By the 2022-2023 school year, that number will be 3,475 — about three per cent of Ontario’s current teacher workforce.
The total savings for removing those full-time positions would be $851 million.
