Minister of Education on AEFO Job Action
TORONTO — Today, Stephen Lecce, Minister of Education, issued the following statement in response to the Association des enseignantes et des enseignants franco-ontariens (AEFO) announcing work-to-rule job action:
"Students across the province are being hurt by union-led escalation. The continued and escalating disruption to learning and educational support is detrimental to the student experience and causes frustration and uncertainty for parents.Parents and students have seen this type of job action every few years for decades. That is why we are calling on the teachers' unions to cease escalation, stop playing with students' futures, and focus on reaching a deal that keeps our students in the classroom where they belong."
