A Troubled Year for Education in Ontario

The Agenda with Steve Paikin

Educators, parents, and students are all poised for the beginning of summer. For many, it will be a welcome respite from the most unusual school year in living memory. From virtual school to on-again-off-again in-class learning this year - and maybe next? - to what the long-term effects might be, it's been tough. To discuss this, we welcome Diana Wang-Martin, teacher in the Peel District School Board; Jay Williams, teacher in the Toronto District School Board; Prachi Srivas-tava, professor specializing in education and global development at Western University; and Kelly Gallagher-Mackay, assistant professor and program coordinator for Wilfrid Laurier University's Law and Society program.
