NDP responds to EQAO test results

Thunder Bay — NDP Education critic Marit Stiles released the following statement in response to the EQAO standardized testing results:

“If you want students to do better in math, don’t fire the math teachers. The cuts in schools are hurting student learning, and the deeper Ford cuts on the way will only make things worse. The only thing Doug Ford has expanded in education is the paycheque of the EQAO chair. The NDP would like to see an end to outdated, old-fashioned and ineffective standardized testing, so that education dollars can all go into the education of Ontario’s children."
