Ontario elementary and high school teachers have entered day two of their work to rule campaign.
The teachers say months of contract talks with the province have resulted in little progress and members of the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario and the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation have said that they will withdraw some of their administrative services.
Those services include putting comments on report cards, attending certain meetings and participating in standardized testing.
“Parents can expect to see absolutely nothing change in terms of the quality of their children’s learning environment,” OSSTF president Harvey Bischof said in a Canadian Press report.
Education Minister Stephen Lecce said the government has been reasonable in its negotiations by scaling back class sizes and mandatory e-learning requirements.
