Today the AODA Alliance wrote Ontario’s Minister of Education Stephen Lecce. We called on the Ford Government to immediately appoint an Associate Deputy Minister of Education with specialized expertise in educating students with disabilities. That official should be immediately assigned to oversee the development and implementation of a desperately-needed and currently missing provincial plan to ensure that students with disabilities in Ontario, numbering at least 340,000, are fully and safely included in school re-opening. The AODA Alliance and others have been pressing for this much-needed plan for months. The letter to the Minister of Education is set out below.
