Dozens Fired from Canadian Schools

Deaf educators in Ontario are up in arms over the layoff of 56 workers from Ontario’s Provincial Schools. Full-time social workers, residence counsellors, maintenance workers and support staff are being forced out while part-time workers are expected to make up the slack. Reaction from Ontario's Public Service Employees Union here, , a video from a hearing mom with a student in the system below (text included), and a deaf man below that (no captions for non-ASL viewers).
