Striking Ontario Teachers Say Standardized Tests Don't Matter Anyway

  Striking Ontario Teachers Say Standardized Tests Don't Matter Anyway BRAMPTON, ONT. — A major Ontario teachers’ union is unfazed by government accusations that its rotating strikes will jeopardize standardized tests. Education Minister Stephen Lecce blamed the Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation (OSSTF) Wednesday when he announced that school boards could delay some standardized tests until June. Grade 9 students were set to start taking their Education Quality and Accountability Office (EQAO) math tests on Monday. OSSTF has been staging one-day strikes and a work-to-rule campaign for months. The union’s 60,000 members stopped preparing students for EQAO tests in November.

Just two days after the winter break, secondary students will be faced with another one - day teachers strike on Wednesday.

The Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation (OSSTF) said in a news release that on the same day, union members in other school boards will also hold information pickets in front of schools and at MPPs' offices.

"The Minister of Education continues to peddle the false narrative that this dispute is about compensation," said OSSTF President Harvey Bischof in a statement. "And yet, when we offered to call off our most recent job action in exchange for class size and staffing guarantees — issues entirely unrelated to compensation — the Ford government chose to reject that offer rather than keep students in classrooms."

CBC Toronto has reached out to the provincial Ministry of Education for comment.

All OSSTF members will be striking in these school boards:

Parents brace for teacher walkouts

  Parents brace for teacher walkouts While all Ottawa public school students will be affected by job action this week, elementary kids are getting a double whammy as tensions in the ongoing labour dispute between teachers and the province ramp up. Starting today, members of the Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario (EFTO) will no longer supervise extra-curricular activities nor participate in field trips or activities outside regular school hours.

The Ontario Secondary School Teachers’ Federation ( OSSTF ) announced that LDSB teachers will be one of eight school boards participating in a one - day strike on January 8. Duration: 01:39 1 day ago.

OSSTF president Harvey Bischof announced Friday the union would hold another one - day strike at select school boards across Ontario on Dec. "Teachers will not sign off on a plan that pulls thousands of educators out of schools and drags Ontario down to the level of US states that replace

A number of French schools are also affected.

The teachers, who are already conducting a work-to-rule campaign, say they are pushing back against the Ford government's plans to increase class sizes and introduce mandatory e-learning courses — measures Progressive Conservatives say are needed to trim a $7.4-billion budget deficit.

But the Progressive Conservative government says the key issue at the bargaining table is compensation.

The province has offered a one per cent annual wage increase, but the union is seeking around two per cent.

Minister of Education Stephen Lecce has said in previous interviews that the union has dug in its heels and is being "unreasonable."

"Fundamentally, strikes hurt kids. Our aim is to keep students in class," he said.
