CTV: Ontario education minister to woo young teachers

Why is the Ontario education minister, planning to make an announcement today?  It's because the Elementary Teachers' Federation of Ontario is starting its annual general meeting today in Toronto.

I don't know how Broten will try to woo young teachers.  Perhaps she wants to divide and conquer.  She may think that by getting to impressionable young teachers, she can tell them that the older and more experienced teachers are hurting the young teachers.  All I will say is that the older teachers have helped the younger ones with their professional development.  What has Laurel Broten done to help young teachers besides originally planning to freeze the pay-grid?
