Broten 'Disappointed' with Teachers at Vaughan School
The Education Minister is repeating her plea to teachers to leave students out of their battle with the government after news that there won't be many extracurricular activities at Stephen Lewis Secondary School in Vaughan.
Notices went up this morning telling students, sports like volleyball, cricket, golf and junior girls basketball will be cancelled this year.
Laurel Broten says she is disappointed.
She says she will look at the Putting Students First Act to see what action the province will take with this issue.
Broten says the province will be keeping an eye on what is happening across the province.
The Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation had one day of action against the province in regards to bowing out of voluntary activities like extracrriculars. The Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario says it will be up to their members if they want to volunteer or not.
