Teacher Unions Angry That Online Learning Will Be Available Next Year

Teachers’ unions, parents and advocacy groups say they fear the Ontario government is considering a move to a permanent online learning stream. The groups raised the alarm after Education Minister Stephen Lecce announced on Tuesday that students would be offered an option to learn online in the next school year. He also said the province has committed to consulting on providing an online option going forward. Critics say a permanent change would divert funds from in-person learning and weaken the public education system.
