  2. Doug Ford vows to replace sex-ed, math curricula, tie university funds to free speech if elected
    By Allison Jones and Liam Casey The Canadian Press

    TORONTO – Doug Ford moved to appease social conservative voters on Tuesday, vowing to scrap and replace the Liberal government’s sex-ed curriculum days after dropping one of its staunchest opponents as a candidate in the spring election.

    The Progressive Conservative leader also said he’d tie post-secondary funding to free speech as he announced three education pledges ahead of Wednesday’s official start to the campaign.

    Several Canadian campuses have seen incidents recently in which controversial speakers or professors have come under fire for their views. One of the most publicized was that of Lindsay Shepherd, a Wilfrid Laurier University teaching assistant who was chastised for airing a clip featuring professor Jordan Peterson, who has refused to use gender-neutral pronouns and has become a hero of the free speech movement.

    Ford did not provide details on how his proposed process would work, but said universities are supposed to be a place where people exchange ideas and too many schools are putting limits on that.

    “We will ensure that publicly funded universities defend free speech for everybody,” Ford said.

    “But we have to remember that free speech is not an invitation to be reckless or hurtful and it all comes down to respect.”

    Emmett Macfarlane, a political science professor at the University of Waterloo, said free speech on campus has become a far right issue by virtue of the fact that most of the controversies have involved people with far right views.

    Ford likely picked core social conservative issues to talk about Tuesday after dropping candidate Tanya Granic Allen over the weekend, he said.

    “I think he’s entering the proper campaign on the tail end of possibly angering some segment of his base with dismissing Granic Allen’s candidacy,” Macfarlane said. “It seems like there was a decision made here to emphasize those kind of meat and potato conservative issues.”

    The sex-ed curriculum sparked controversy, particularly among social conservatives, when the Liberal government introduced it in 2015. It was the first time the curriculum had been updated since 1998 and included warnings about online bullying and sexting, but protesters zeroed in on discussions of same-sex marriage, masturbation and gender identity.

    “For too long the Liberals have ignored Ontario parents,” Ford said Tuesday. “They have introduced the sex curriculum based on ideology – a curriculum that teaches sensitive topics starting at an early age.”

    Ford said a Tory government would restore the old sex-ed curriculum until a new “age-appropriate” one could be installed.

    He said in a news release that under Premier Kathleen Wynne “schools have been turned into social laboratories and our kids into test subjects for whatever special interests and so-called experts that have captured Kathleen Wynne’s ear.”

    Ford wouldn’t say what parts of the sex-ed curriculum he takes issue with, only that parents were not consulted enough.

    The policy pledge, which he has previously spoken about, came shortly after he dropped Granic Allen, an anti-sex-ed advocate, as a candidate when homophobic statements she made were brought to light by the Liberals. She had also run for the party leadership and threw her base of social conservative support to Ford.

    Granic Allen called her removal a “betrayal” of social conservatives, and she said she hoped Ford would at least promise to repeal and replace the sex-ed curriculum.

    Liberal campaign co-chair Deb Matthews said the timing of Ford’s sex-ed announcement is “curious.”

    “I think it’s a big mistake,” she said. “It is not evidence-based, and he’s trying to figure out how to keep social conservatives in his party while he turfs out Tanya and maybe others.”

    NDP Leader Andrea Horwath also criticized Ford’s pledge, saying the old curriculum the Tory leader is vowing to bring back was the same one in place when her now 25-year-old son was in school.

    “There’s no doubt that curriculum needed to be upgraded, New Democrats supported that,” she said. “I think Mr. Ford may be considering dragging our province backwards.”

    Ford also promised he would scrap and replace Ontario’s “discovery math” curriculum. With half of Ontario’s Grade 6 students not meeting a provincial math standard, schools need to get back to the basics, he said.

    “Kids used to learn math by doing things like memorizing a multiplication table and it worked,” Ford said. “Instead, our kids are left with experimental discovery math. That hardly teaches math at all. Instead, everyone gets a participation ribbon and our kids are left to fend for themselves.”

    In April 2016, Ontario announced a three-year, $60-million math strategy that puts an average of 60 minutes per day of “protected math learning time” in the curriculum for students between Grade 1 and Grade 8.

    The following year, only half of students in Grade 6, and 62 per cent of those in Grade 3 met the provincial standard in math. The dismal results prompted Wynne to announce the province would look at overhauling its math education program.

    A spokesman for Ontario’s education minister said the curriculum gives students a balanced math program.

    “Bottom line is students are already learning their multiplication and division skills in Ontario’s classrooms,” Richard Francella said in a statement.

    數學這一塊,我想傳統標準化「填鴨」教育 vs. 建構「發現」主義總是各有優劣,前者早熱,後者慢涼,總是平衡一些好。比可惜的是政黨容易走極端,為反對而反對,說的好像對面都是傻叉。這樣來說,定期換個黨、換個極端平衡一下也是好的。
    如果用傳統的左右定義來看,左派的教育關注的是學力較弱的,多用耐心培養其興趣,不要摧毀他的自信。那麼華人孩子的數學平均較好,對待學習的態度較認真,而且被推得多,稍微被動一點,在這樣的政策下就受不到照顧。但是換個學科,在英語和文化方面,左派的教育又是對移民、包括華人有利的。他強調包容、多元,雖然有時因為鄙視鍊條的位置讓一些網友們覺得包容底層的族群已經過頭了,但是白人的視野裡,左派教育的確是也包蔽著語文、人文方面尚在融入的華人子弟。:D 請注意言論自由也包括了對華人不利的言論。

    1. 任何东西都有度。走了极端不好。言论自由也有明确的的限度。这个是个很深的话题。可以拿出来讨论N年。参见美国宪法修正案的尺度吧。
    2. 华人的权利是靠发声和抗争一点点提高和维护的。不是靠立法强制,限制言论自由就可以得到的。反而侵害言论自由才真正是社会矛盾的导火索。

    populist总是能赢得选票的:evil:

    教育里最大的浪费是那四个school boards,人员叠置,人浮于事。。谭雅教会学校背景出身,合并四个boards肯定是连提都不敢提。。福特要是有种,背后真有能人把这个放入他的议事日程,我立马窗户上挂他面选旗。。:)

    相当有理:D
    关于数学,我也有点不一样的心得。。。断断续续研究了一下二年级的内容,发现好像没有传说中那么傻:shy: 究竟是老师们不熟悉新教学法导致的还是新教学法就不好,这个问题值得探讨。
    与此同时,好像魁省的数学教育成果显著啊,都飙升至PSI第一梯队了。不知道那边用的是传统教材还是新教材。

    whenever public board goes crazy,大家还可以去天主教board混。两个选择比一个好。相信很多不信教的华人家长已经这么做了。

    还要大一统?大家就更没有选择了。大政府已经够够得了。fuking stucpid的事做了多少?

    不如这样,把教育相关的税收减免,缩减公共教育规模。鼓励私校。

    你说说,有谁提过这个动议?给个名字,想看看这背后的讨论。合并的好处,成本,坏处。

    但是从政府社会主义化规模来看,合并不一定是好事。

    数学原来挺好的,搞了这个什么xxxx以后,现在这安省数学才出现危机。
    同时参见英国教育方向。不用死记硬背,也不能一点不背(举例说中庸)。任何事情极端了,就是傻逼了。问题是傻逼占据位置,我们孩子受害

    政府应该做的提高效率,在现有的人力物力财力下,干更多的事,更好的事。FORD提到了提高效率,但当被问到HOW时,他并没给出个说法。
    什么时候政府工,政府资助单位的员工,不闲着在CFC上发言,政府效率就提高了。:evil:
