Lobby Day November 28th, 2018
On November 28, 2018 OSSTF/FEESO held a Lobby Day at the Legislative Assembly of Ontario. Local leaders were brought to Queen’s Park to meet with their local Members of Provincial Parliament (MPPs) to seek action on issues that affects all of our members. Guelph MPP Mike Schreiner pledged his support to maintaining Ontario's excellent public education system. Attending Lobby Day at Queen’s Park on November 28th was Ivy Woods (District 18 CPAC) and Amy Reinders (D18 TBU Secretary) seen here with Mike Schreiner.
The goal of this Lobby Day was to promote that ‘Public Education is for Everyone’ – not just students, parents, and staff, but for communities, businesses and leaders as well.
As reported by Reinders, the delegates encouraged discussions with the MPPs to include the following points:
* The excellent quality of Ontario’s education system
* The variety of programs and choices offered by the public education system
* The accessibility and inclusion that is provided through public education
* That we are a full service education team, and that every person on that team plays an integral role.
