QUEEN'S PARK — NDP Education critic Marit Stiles released the following statement in response to Education Minister Stephen Lecce's update on some Ontario school boards resuming in-person learning on Feb. 1:
Many parents and students are eager to see a return to in-person learning, but without proper safety measures from Doug Ford, we're at risk of more illness and future school closures.
Announcing more school returns with zero additional safety measures is a recipe for more illness and further spread of the virus. As Sick Kids and numerous health experts have advised, schools in Ontario must be made safer to curb the spread of the virus. The government must do better to protect our kids and educators."
