Interactive: Increasingly, Ontario graduates shun teacher’s college

Patrick Cain

A story/interactive package I’ve been working on for a while went live yesterday – a look at the very depressing job situation for freshly trained Ontario teachers, and how the production of new teachers got badly out of whack with teacher retirements (teacher education was expanded in response to what turned out to be a temporary surge in retirements in the late ’90s, and is just now being scaled back).

In turn, graduates of Ontario universities are showing much less interest in going to teacher’s college. Under the circumstances, it’s hard to blame them.
