Too many children are going to school in buildings without proper heating or cooling, with leaky roofs or stairways overdue for repair. After years of Conservative and Liberal governments neglecting schools, the backlog of needed repairs has reached over $16 billion.
During the 2018 Election, numerous members of the Conservative Party, including the current Minister of Education, pledged to provide adequate, stable funding for Ontario’s schools. However, less than three weeks into the legislative session, Doug Ford and the Conservative government have already cut $100 million in much-needed school repairs, leaving our children and educators to suffer in classrooms that are unsafe and unhealthy.
Now more than ever, we need a government that will make funding schools and education a priority. Bhutila Karpoche and the NDP will get it done.
Add your name if you want a government to prioritize schools and education.
