Ontarians worried about education quality

New survey says education should be ‘high priority’ for the province


Ontarians are concerned about the quality of education in the province, according to a survey released today. While close to half of the 1,800 adults polled agreed that education quality had not changed since premier Dalton McGuinty took office, nearly a third said that quality is worse than under the previous Tory government. Additionally, 74 per cent of Ontarians said they believe education should be a “high priority” for the province, and two thirds said that tuition fees are too high, including almost 90 per cent of those aged 18-24. The survey was conducted in January and was jointly commissioned by the Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations, and the Ontario branch of the Canadian Federation of Students.
