Each Ontario Teacher Costs $536 Per School Day

Post by PNN »

"In 2018-19, the total funding for compensation for an average full-time OSSTF teacher was approximately $103,926 ... There are 194 school days, so this translates to approximately $536 per school day":

If the government had any spine, they would allow parents who keep their kids home to have the money that would have gone to their child's education so they could use it to homeschool or to hire teachers for small pods of children/charter schools.

But, alas, Doug Ford is a wolf in sheep's clothing. :-(

Someone I know worked over 30 years for the Edmonton Public School Board at head office in a management position. They've told me the board is the second largest land owner in the city besides the city itself and that DOES NOT INCLUDE schools themselves.

The board owns strip malls, warehouses, future development sites and apartment blocks. They are essentially speculating on real estate with public tax funds intended for education. Then they whine about the costs and want more money for PPE during the virus when they could just sell a couple strip malls.

Nothing is as it seems. :-$

I've always believed in school vouchers where the education money follows the student. As long as the provincial curriculum is taught, it shouldn't matter if it's in a public, private or home school. The competition will force teachers and their unions to serve their customers and not themselves.

I nearly posted this. I agree with you.
