Media Advisory: OSSTF Toronto High School Teachers Rally for Respect

TORONTO, ONTARIO--(Marketwire - March 9, 2009) -

Attention: Assignment editor and education reporters

OSSTF Toronto High School teachers are holding a rally prior to the Toronto District School Board Meeting on March 11 to show the trustees that the Board needs to settle a contract that puts students first and respects teachers. Being prepared to give up $50 million dollars in funding to make teachers do more hallway patrol is not putting students first or respecting teachers' work with students.

Date: Wednesday, March 11
Time: 4:30 pm
Place: Toronto District School Board
5050 Yonge Street
Mel Lastman Square
