Ontario’s Deteriorating Schools – The Fix Is Not In

Ontario’s deteriorating schools – the fix is not in is a report from economist Hugh Mackenzie about the state of repair and physical condition of Ontario’s elementary and secondary schools. The report looks at the historical level of provincial funding for schools operation and maintenance and estimates the funding needed. The report finds that Ontario’s school repair backlog has increased from $5.6 billion in 2003 to a staggering $15.9 billion in 2017. The report indicates that while the Ontario government has significantly increased annual funding for school repairs, the funding has not kept pace with the accumulating repair backlog, leaving many schools in a serious state of disrepair, affecting both the quality of education and healthiness of the school environment.
