Province Reacts to ETFO's Decision
There are no scathing words from education minister to the Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario (ETFO).
While Liz Sandals says in a written statement that she's disappointed with ETFO's decision, the government is please with what she calls the meaningful ways the union has tried to work together.
Sandals underline the only way for the education sector to progress is to have strong relationships with teachers.
She says she looks forward to more constructive conversations with ETFO.
Meantime, the Tories says Premier Kathleen Wynne's promise for a better process failed miserably. Education Critic Lisa MacLeod says the fight between the province and ETFO continues to be taken out on kids.
However, NDP MPP Peter Tabuns underlines the province created the conflict with Bill 115 and they have to work hard to clean up what he calls a mess.
