Province Agrees To Smaller Kindergarten Classes

A document obtained by The Canadian Press suggests the province has agreed to cap full-day kindergarten classes at 30. The copy of the government’s tentative contract extension agreement with elementary teachers suggests that if it’s ratified, the teachers will get a four per cent raise over two years.

 

The terms in the tentative deal, which would still require regulatory amendments, would set the kindergarten class size cap at 30 for the next school year and 29 for the year after that.

 
The Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario says it won’t comment on the deal until it is ratified, but it has long pushed for smaller class sizes.
