Competition for students among Ontario school boards grows fierce - The Globe and Mail

Competition for students among Ontario school boards grows fierce - The Globe and Mail:

 "Ontario school boards are upping their student-recruitment game, sending moles to competing high school open houses, promoting sports teams and clubs, and bolstering their kindergarten registration advertisements, as the teachers’ labour dispute shows no sign of abating.

Nowhere in the country is competition for students more fierce than in Ontario, where four distinct publicly funded systems – francophone public, francophone Catholic, English Catholic and English public – are present in nearly every corner of the province. English public schools are at a disadvantage this year: They are the only ones whose teachers are protesting government-imposed contracts by stopping extracurricular activities, leaving those schools without sports teams and clubs."
