Ontario high school students are staying home on December 4 while teachers hold a one-day strike across the province. The provincial government was unable to reach an agreement with the teachers' union, leading to the closure of most schools for the day. The Ontario teachers' strike has seen education workers turn out in huge numbers in the snow.\nThe action has closed schools from five different school boards across the province. Those are the Toronto, Peel, York, Durham and Halton District School Boards, according to 680 News.The major issues of the strike that left the Ontario Secondary School Teachers' Federation (OSSTF) at odds with the PC government have been the suggestion of increasing class sizes as well as bringing in mandatory e-learning for secondary students. Teachers are not here for it and have taken to the streets on this cold winter day in Ontario to strike. Extracurricular activities and field trips that were scheduled for today are cancelled.\nAnd it seems there's been a strong turnout, judging by the many videos online. Check some of the footage out below.\nIn some of the videos, you can hear passing by cars giving friendly honks in solidarity with the row of teachers on the side of the road.\npic.twitter.com/VvtMXhL6FI— OSSTF District 3 (@osstfdistrict3) December 4, 2019\nStrikers are waving flags that read "NO CUTS TO EDUCATION" while standing in the bitter cold.\nSpirits are strong and solidarity is high at Orangeville District Secondary School @osstf #osstf #NoCutsToEducation full of community members, #ETFO, #AEFO, students and parents on the picket line telling #onpoli #onted pic.twitter.com/rZ05gonGJt— Jessica Burnie (@jessburnie) December 4, 2019\nIn @GilaMartow’s riding at Thornhill Secondary where a reduction in classes because of the cuts have limited student options.

He said that "as soon as the government indicates that it has a new proposal to make that is productive, we will engage with them.""Class size is the most important guarantee that students have to a quality education," he continued. "It's time for the Education Minister to listen to parents. Parents don't want larger classes or mandatory e-learning and the government tried to keep that buried."\nNarcity also reached out to the office of Education Minister Stephen Lecce, and they replied with a statement that "our Government has remained reasonable at the negotiating table, with the objective of keeping students in class."The statement of behalf of Lecce continued: "I am open to a framework that achieves our goal of reaching a deal that keeps students in the classroom."\nThere are stories everywhere.
