Doug Ford's Math on Math All Wrong

Tuesday, May 8, 2018

TORONTO –  Doug Ford’s claim that Ontario students are failing at math just doesn’t add up.  The reality is that Ontario students place second in math across Canada. Here are the rankings in the Pan-Canadian Assessment Program.

In fact, Ontario was one of only three provinces to score at or above the Canadian average in reading, science and math.

Of course, there is always more to do to help Ontario students. That is why we have implemented our Renewed Math Strategy (RMS) that will:

  • Add 60 minutes each day of math instruction;
  • Ensure up to three math lead teachers in all elementary schools, and;
  • Provide parents with resources to support learning at home.

It is Ford who has the math problem.

His platform doesn’t add up.

His agenda causes division.

And he will subtract teachers from Ontario classrooms.
