Ontario's Education Minister, the Hon. Stephen Lecce, spent the first half of this year fighting to keep kids inside the classroom. Little did he know, he'd spend the second half fighting to ensure they had the resources needed to learn outside the classroom because of COVID-19. Minister Lecce joins the podcast for a fascinating talk about the decision to close Ontario's schools to protect from the pandemic, the path forward when schools resume, the future of child care in Ontario, and a look back at the recently concluded round of negotiations with the province's big 4 teachers' unions.
