What does the future of education look like in Ontario?

At a time when we desperately need a vision for the future, Bill 115 delivers a blow to what should be the most fundamental piece of our education system - having great teachers in every classroom.

By making hiring decisions based on seniority, without regard for performance or fit, we will lose great teachers and erode the quality of education which will reduce earning potential and slow economic growth in Ontario.

The Putting Students First Act enacts regulations that have unintended consequences on the quality of education, overstates savings, and hurts our children.
