As a result of increasing class sizes, the Ontario Secondary School Teacher’s Federation says hundreds of teachers will lose their jobs.
According to the Behind the Numbers Report produced by the Canadian Centre for Policy Alternatives, the Rainbow District alone will lose up to 65 teachers over the next four years.
The Catholic boards will lose up to 66 across Northern Ontario.
The interactive map produced by the centre not only allows users to view the loss of teachers predicted for individual school boards, but viewers can also see some Ontario school boards will lose hundreds of teachers.
Support staff, social workers and other education personnel will also be impacted.
