Ontario students deserve better.
Safety should be prioritized, not politicized.
We are parents, education workers, front-line workers, lawyers, engineers and doctors demanding the Ontario government provide students and education workers with safe, stable, in-person learning spaces.
Indoor air quality standards, transparency, public education, and expert-informed policy are critical to keep schools open and communities healthy.
We are fighting for every student who deserves a safe education and every education worker who deserves a healthy workplace. This should not be controversial. Ontario deserves better.
The government has not stepped in to make any improvements to schools; in fact – they did the very opposite. In our particular school, we did not see any evidence of additional air purifiers being provided or used despite hearing constant chatter about the alleged ‘improved ventilation'.
This is absolute hell, and no one seems to care. There’s nothing my family can do to keep ourselves safe anymore, except remove ourselves from society as much as possible.

We said in our last update that the clean air movement is growing and since then we have seen the needle continue to move in the right direction. Take a look through our November update to learn the ways in which OSS and all of your support is making a difference in improving indoor air quality in classrooms.
