Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario (ETFO) have announced their endorsement of Andrea Horwath and the NDP in this election. "If Ontarians want change that is going to truly better their lives, it's not through more corporate tax cuts and $6 billion in cuts to government services that the Doug Ford Conservatives are promising" said ETFO President Sam Hammond.

The NDP is promising to conduct a review of Ontario's funding formula and end EQAO testing, invest in repairing crumbling schools and base special education funding on actual student needs, changes that ETFO has called for to improve the province's education system. The Federation represents 81,000 elementary public school teachers, occasional teachers and education professionals across the province.

"Ford's commitment to cut $6 billion in government expenditure can only lead to serious cuts in education and other services. We've seen what happens when populists like Doug Ford rail against all forms of government. The wealthiest corporations and individuals benefit while average people lose the services they need to look after themselves and their families."

"Educators see the effects of poverty and economic inequality on students and their families every day. Ontarians need decent work, a well-funded education system and better public services like pharmacare, dental care and child care to get ahead."
