Ontario Increases Funding Per Student

McGuinty Government Protecting Gains In Education

Ontario is increasing funding for students for the 10th year in a row.

The 2012-13 Grants for Student Needs (GSN) will rise this coming year to $11,189 per student. That is an increase of about $4,000 per student since 2003. The increased funding has led to significant achievements in the education system including smaller class sizes, higher test scores in reading, math and science, higher graduation rates and help for underperforming schools.

Additional funding is also being provided outside of these grants to ensure full-day kindergarten is rolled out on schedule to give our youngest learners the best possible start.

This yearˇ¦s increases will help protect full-day kindergarten, a cap on class sizes and teaching jobs. However, school boards, particularly with declining enrolment, will still need to find savings.

The McGuinty government is committed to working with its partners in education to eliminate the deficit, while preserving jobs and making sure every student is able to reach their full potential.

QUOTES

ˇ§Ontarioˇ¦s publicly funded education system is now ranked the best in the English-speaking world. And, despite these challenging economic times, we are going to protect the gains weˇ¦ve made in education. The 2012-13 GSN makes a very deliberate choice to protect smaller class sizes, full-day kindergarten and almost 20,000 teaching and support staff jobs.ˇ¨
ˇX Laurel Broten, Minister of Education
