Kindergarten Works

Extensive research has shown that Ontario’s current Kindergarten model, which includes a full-time certified teacher and a designated early childhood educator (DECE), works best for students. It lays the foundation for all of their learning going forward and provides lasting benefits for children’s reading, writing, numeracy, self-regulation and social skills.

Violence in our schools is a symptom of broader issues facing the education system; including: larger classes, a lack of resources and student supports and fewer staff to meet the varied needs of students.

Support for Students with Special Needs

The funding model for special education programs is based on a predictive model rather than student needs. Funding is disconnected from what is happening in elementary classrooms and the needs of students in our schools.
