Ontario kids could be back in their classrooms in less than a month — but Premier Ford and Education Minister Lecce’s haphazard back to school plan is putting students, teachers and communities at risk of COVID-19 outbreaks.[1]

Teachers are calling it a “disaster”: inadequate funding for a safe reopening, patchwork safety requirements and overcrowded classrooms with no room for physical distancing. [2][3]

A groundswell of public outrage now could force Premier Ford and Education Minister Lecce back to the drawing board to come up with a better plan that prioritizes the health and safety of students and staff. It could help prevent COVID-19 outbreaks in our schools but with schools set to reopen in just a few weeks, we have to act fast. 

Add your name to the petition calling on Premier Ford and Minister Lecce to create a better back to school plan that prioritizes the health and safety of students and school staff. 
 

Premier Doug Ford and Minister Lecce:

Educators want to be back in the classroom with their students — but they want to do so safely, with significantly smaller class sizes so proper physical distancing guidelines can be followed, enhanced cleaning measures and health and safety training for staff.

Create a plan that prioritizes the health and safety of students and education workers.
