Read these heartbreaking stories from teachers fired by Doug Ford
Doug Ford promised to during the Ontario election that not a single government worker would lose their job under his government. Like many of Ford’s promises, it turned out to be a lie.
Teachers across Ontario are losing their jobs as Ford’s education cuts take effect. The combination of bigger class sizes and reduced funding are forcing school boards to reduce teaching positions and layoff teachers.

Here are the teachers who’ve lost their jobs and their personal stories.
