We are a grassroots, non-partisan, parent-led campaign creating a large network of citizens across Ontario who all expect that:
· Every Ontario public school student attends a safe, well-maintained school
· The $15-Billion of disrepair across all 72 Ontario school boards is addressed
· Public schools are funded as critical to public infrastructure – on par with transit
