Classes oversize at TCDSB’s schools, parents organize the protest

TORONTO – Classes oversize in the schools of the Toronto Catholic District School Board: the parents are preparing the protest. After the decision of the TCDSB to increase the number of students in the classrooms, exceeding the number of thirty for each classroom, “to save money” (the salaries of teachers whose number will be reduced), the families have decided to organize protests in front of the schools, tomorrow, from 8.30 to 10. 

“Unvaccinated children are at risk and represent 30% of new cases of Covid-19 – reads one of the flyers distributed in front of schools this morning – and, despite this and the recommendations of the Covid-19 Science Advisory Table that invited to organize smaller classes at the beginning of the school year, we will end up with classes full of students. Fewer teachers and more students in each classroom: we say no”.

The organizers of the protest invite all parents to write to and to stay updated through the Instagram page nocuts2021
