On June 9, 2016, Toronto Star reporter Louise Brown wrote an article titled Longer Teachers’ Training Spells Financial Trouble (p.GT4).

“The new program — which also halved the number of education spots at every Ontario faculty of education — was meant to stem the wave of rookies into a flooded job market and give them more time to polish their skills in everything from math to mental health. Many hail it as long-overdue catch-up to the level of prep offered in other provinces.
