What up OISE?!
If OISE doesn’t train teachers, is it still OISE? Ok, so I get that they will still be training them, though a 2-year MA/MAT program, but they will be training more than half the current number, “under pressure from the province”. When the medical profession decreased the numbers of doctors being trained in the (same) province in the 1990s, it was partly responsible for sparking today’s doctor shortage. So, what happens if this sparks a teacher shortage?
Oh and Uh, and does this mean they will now start hiring professors of education who are not (also) teacher trainers?!
