TORONTO, Sept. 4 /CNW Telbec/ - As Ontario's students head back to the
classroom for the new school year, Canadian Jewish Congress Ontario Region
(CJCONT) is launching an advertising campaign to inform Ontarians about
bringing non-Catholic faith-based schools into the public education system.
The radio and television ad campaign began this morning, and will run on
Toronto stations through this weekend.
The ads underline the inherent unfairness in public education, where more
than 650,000 Catholic school students are publicly funded, while
53,000 students in other faith-based schools are shut out. The goal of the
campaign is to build awareness of the inherent unfairness that exists in
Ontario's public education system, which currently does not reflect the
diversity of 21st century Ontario.
The ads can be viewed at www.cjc.ca. High-resolution copies of the ads
are available on request from CJCONT.
