More than 70-thousand Ontario high school students are out of class today as a result of teacher strikes at three school boards. Teachers in Peel Region, west of Toronto, hit the picket lines Monday after talks to avert a strike went into the early-morning hours, but ultimately failed to reach a deal. This is the first round of negotiations since the province brought in a new bargaining system, with both local and provincial talks. With three high school strikes ongoing and elementary teachers threatening to strike on Sunday, Progressive Conservative education critic Garfield Dunlop calls the new system a trainwreck. (The high school teachers' union says the province is threatening the learning conditions of Ontario students by tabling proposals that will lead to larger class sizes.)
