Stakeholders speak out about Ontario class size caps
The province announced this week that it has started consultations to look at a variety of issues in the education system — including class sizes.
Kindergarten classes are currently capped at 29 students and primary school classes at 23.
CBC Kitchener-Waterloo's The Morning Edition heard views from:
- Greg Weiler, President of the Elementary Teachers Federation of Ontario Waterloo region.
- Patrick Etmanski, president of Ontario English Catholic Teachers Association Waterloo.
- Education minister Lisa Thompson.
- Charles Pascal is a professor at the Ontario Institute for Studies in Education in Toronto, whose study created the current caps.
