Keep Classrooms Safe for Students and Staff


WHEREAS students and education workers deserve stronger, safer schools to learn and work in;

WHEREAS the pressure placed on our education system has contributed to an increase in reports of violence in our schools;

WHEREAS crowded classrooms, a lack of support for staff, and underfunding of mental health supports are all contributing to this crisis;

WHEREAS the government of Ontario has the responsibility and tools to address this crisis, but has refused to act;

THEREFORE, we the undersigned, petition the Legislative Assembly of Ontario to

  • Take immediate action to address violence in our schools;
  • Invest in more mental health resources;
  • End violence against education workers and improve workplace violence reporting;
  • Properly fund our schools to ensure smaller class sizes with more support staff.
