Principals want to cancel EQAO testing

School principals in Ontario are asking the government to delay the “Education Quality and Accountability Office” literacy test set for March 31st, because of on-going strikes by teachers across the
province.

The principals are suggesting the E-Q-A-O test be put off for a year, with a double cohort taking it at that time.

They say students may not be sufficiently prepared for the test because of the teachers’ job actions, and holding the test on the appointed day may not be possible.

So far, there’s been no response from Education Minister Stephen Lecce
