Elementary public school teachers are pleased to see that providing Ontarioâ€˜s children with a solid educational base continues to be a priority for the government.
â€œThe government seems to understand that the future prosperity of the province has its roots in a strong public education system,â€ said Emily Noble president of the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO).
â€œ We recognize and support the premierâ€™s vision of education as fundamental to ensuring a bright future for Ontario.â€
Noble added that it is important that the government ensure that there is proper funding to support the rebuilding of public education.
She pointed out that the government has made a number of announcements and commitments â€“ summarized in the speech from the throne â€“ to enhance the quality of public education.
â€œWe will be watching to see how the plans are implemented,â€ Noble said. â€œIt is important that these commitments become a reality in the classroom. The future of our province does depend on our studentsâ€™ success.â€
