All publicly-funded schools in Ontario will remain closed until at least May 31 due to the COVID-19 pandemic, Education Minister Stephen Lecce has announced. Ontario schools were initially closed for two weeks following March Break in an effort to limit the spread of COVID-19. The government then extended the closure through at least May 4, though Premier Doug Ford later said that it was unrealistic to think that children would be able to return to classes by that point. Speaking at Queen’s Park on Sunday afternoon, Lecce said that the decision to extend the closure through the end of May was based on “expert advice” from public health officials. He said that “if there is a way to save some of the school year at the back end,” his government would consider it but not at the expense of safety. “The extension will provide the province more time, sufficient time to review the data and the modelling so that we can make the best decision based on the best medical advice and ensure that ultimately students remain safe and staff remain safe should they return to school at some point his year or at any point beyond,” he said. While a number of other provinces have announced the cancellation of in-person classes for the rest of the year, Ontario has so far refused to do the same though it has worked to ramp up its online learning program and has promised that students will receive final grades, regardless of whether schools reopen. On Sunday, Lecce said that he “appreciates full well” that parents, educators and students al want a “greater degree of certainty” and hopes to provide a “final update” with respect to this school year before May 31. He said that in the meantime the province will also provide “some greater” context with regards to the benchmarks that need to be hit to reopen schools when it releases its economic recovery plan sometime this week. “I think currently the advice from the chief medical officer of health is that we are not there today. We need more time we need to see a reduced risk to young people and we have accepted that advice as we always have and given ourselves another month of time,” he said. All remaining PA days cancelled Since ordering the closuring the closure of all schools last month, the province has worked to ramp up its online learning program and recently struck a deal with Apple to distribute thousands of iPads to students from low-income families. Lecce said that at this point there are no plans to extend the school year, as officials are confident that adequate instruction is being delivered through the online learning program. He did, however, say that all remaining professional activity (PA) days and examination days will be cancelled to maximize instruction time. The province is also working to introduce a more robust summer learning program to help interested students “mitigate from learning loss,” Lecce said. As for the eventual resumption of classes, whenever that may be, Lecce said that his government will take an open-mided approach to ensuring safety. “If students return at some point later this year my commitment is to come back here and communicate to you how I will ensure every parent in this province that we can ensure the safety of your child. If it involves changing how classrooms are structured or designed we will look at that. We have a duty and responsibility to be open to every idea to achieve safety,” he said. WATCH MY YOUTUBE VIDEO
Ontario is closing all public schools for two weeks following March break amid the COVID-19 pandemic, Premier Doug Ford announced Thursday. It came as the province announced 17 new confirmed cases - its biggest surge to date - bringing the total to 59. The decision to close schools from March 14 to April 5 is based on advice from Ontario's chief medical officer of health, Ford said in a joint statement with Health Minister Christine Elliott and Education Minister Stephen Lecce.
2 Posterity, Higher Leadership Training By Exegesisme "We the people of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America." I never see other human articles put posterity in this way this importance, who in future from us are secured in the blessings of liberty, which in my faith is another name of god. The following growth of USA from the constitution has been secured in this expression of the word posterity, all other expressions in the same constitution need to be carried on by the being the word posterity means. The meaning of posterity in the constitution gains a vivid life in the real political living of USA, and becomes the most powerful driving force for the most developed education system and other enterprises. For children, the concept is the most commonly used in the speeches of politicians of USA.
Which Party Should Be Elected? By Exegesisme In long run, the prosperity of Canada depends on science, technology, and education. If you vote for the long-term prosperity of Canada, you should ask yourself, which party provide the strongest leadership to promote the progress of science, technology, and education in Canada. However, the progress of science, technology, and education depends on the instructive creativity of the people. How does a political party play a role to promote the instructive creativity of the people? Instructive creativity is a new concept, which means personal creativity which plays instructive role in a group, a community, and/or the whole society. The instructive creativity depends on two factors. First, the freedom and rights are actually endowed in the core of a person through systematic education. Second, the society is well prepared to welcome the emergence of personal creativity. This is a creative culture stimulated by both the progress of politics as examples of USA and UK, and the invention of a deep philosophy as example of Germany. Now in Canada, in the political field, which party can play leadership to promote a sustainable political progress? I hope Canadian people can choose such a party. No matter which party is elected, I hope that party plays a strong leadership in political progress in long run.
