In support of a young, engaged, democratic youth: A historic student walkout
We are proud to stand in solidarity with over 100,000 young people that walked out yesterday, using their democratic rights and agency to stand up for their future.
The Ministry of Education released a statement yesterday, continuing to spin false allegations of union involvement in the student walkout.
ETT members look upon the feat of the students of Toronto yesterday with awe; that they independently gave voice to their cause and their determination to bravely protect their public education.
They orchestrated the walkout yesterday entirely on their own, without any influence or direction from their teachers. We unequivocally deny any part in their historic action yesterday.
