This week will be a mess for hundreds of thousands of students and their parents across Ontario as elementary teachers escalate their job action and high school teachers return to a series of rotating one-day strikes.
This comes after weeks of work-to-rule, rotating strikes, missed tests and the reduction in extracurricular activities that students cherish.
The Ford government is in the midst of a battle with all of Ontario’s public teachers — English teachers, French teachers, Catholic teachers at both the elementary and the high school level. And, judging by the escalating job action, it’s making little headway.
It’s time to end this.
