This government failed to give our schools the support they needed during the pandemic, leading to the longest school closures in Canada. Now they're cutting $800 million from our kids’ classrooms.
Families are burnt out and kids are struggling with their wellbeing. We can’t afford another year of disruptions, closures or painful remote and hybrid learning.
I am calling on this government to invest in our kids to guarantee a safe back to school in September, including:
- A classroom cap of 15
- Upgrades to ventilation systems
- Offering two-doses of the COVID vaccine to all staff and students over 12
- More classroom supports for kids with special needs
- In-school mental health and wellness supports
