The Ford government moved further on class sizes on Tuesday, saying that they would agree to an average high school class size of 23, allow parents to opt their high school aged kids out of online learning but otherwise stick to their guns. That means a wage increase of 1% per year, merit-based hiring for teachers instead of seniority, and putting special education funding to school boards instead of through unions. In essence, the government is trying to give parents most of what they want while also containing rising education costs.
