On May 24, 2019, ETFO responded to the second phase of the Ministry of Education's consultation on Class Size. ETFO believes that the issue of class size should be dealt with at the bargaining table. ETFO strongly opposes the government's plan to increase average class sizes for grades 4 to 8. ETFO highlighted the need for hard caps on class size, the importance of considering class composition in discussions about class size and called on the government to commit to maintaining the current Teacher/Designated Early Childhood Educator team model for Full-Day Kindergarten.
