“TEACHON” LAUNCHES IN ONTARIO TO ADVOCATE ON BEHALF OF FAMILIES WITH CHILDREN AT INDEPENDENT SCHOOLS
GROUP TO BUILD PROVINCIAL COALITION TO ENSURE ALL CHILDREN IN ONTARIO
RECEIVE FAIR AND EQUAL ACCESS TO EDUCATION FUNDING
TORONTO, Ontario – Community leaders from across Ontario, in partnership with the Orthodox Union’s Teach Coalition, are proud to announce the launch of TeachON to address the disparity in government funding for families whose children attend an independent school in Ontario best suited to their educational needs.
TeachON’s first priority will be to pursue a broad portfolio of policies related to STEM education, school security and special needs funding.
The Ontario-based group will follow a similar model to the broader Teach Coalition, working with MPPs to secure proper funding for independent schools. As part of this mission, TeachON will be putting together a broad coalition of organizations, federations and schools that represent the many varied communities in Ontario whose children attend an institution best suited to their unique medical, religious, philosophical or pedagogical needs.
Teach Coalition, a leading nonpartisan organization advocating for equitable funding in nonpublic schools has secured more than US $1 billion in funding for non-public schools in North America since 2011.Read more
