TORONTO - Ontario parents with children in public elementary schools should brace for one-day teacher strikes.

Education Minister Laurel Broten said Thursday that she will not interfere in plans by the Elementary Teachers’ Federation of Ontario (ETFO) to launch one-day rotating strikes in school boards across the province.

Broten acknowledged it was an inconvenience for parents but argued one day off school would not jeopardize student learning.
