Across Ontario, the shadow of the Progressive Conservative government’s massive education cuts loomed over the start of the school year. Students are already being forced to forge an education in the midst of reckless cuts. And although the repercussions will inevitably bring harm to those currently employed by the education system, the fallout will ultimately be felt by Ontario’s students.

It’s clear that these cuts are an injustice across the board, but how are these cuts going to harm students?
