Brampton High Schools Cut Programs Due to Teacher Layoffs
High schools provide students with numerous different courses to choose from. However, recent cutbacks have forced some Brampton schools to cut back on what they can offer.
Last month, it was announced that over 330 teachers would be laid off in the Peel Region, as a result of recent funding cuts by the government. This has forced many schools throughout Brampton to cut back on offered courses.
Schools affected by the cuts include Turner Fenton Secondary School, Mayfield Secondary School, David Suzuki Secondary School, and Brampton Centennial Secondary School.
Brampton Centennial was the most recent school to have announced cut courses, with 30 classes being cut next school year. Mayfield recently announced 42 courses would be cut from the 2019/2020 school year.
