Declare education an essential service

Education should be a basic human right for every Ontarian, not a bargaining chip for negotiation.

 

The government took a huge step forward this year with the new Ontario Student Grant taking effect and making post-secondary education accessible to all, regardless of income. This is the next logical step forward to avoiding a public education crisis at every level, elementary, secondary and post-secondary. We need to become more proactive about protecting our education, instead of reacting only when students' education may be jeopardized.
