Wynne will attempt to correct things with teachers

TORONTO - The Ontario government’s respectful tone with educators has to be restored, Premier-designate Kathleen Wynne says.
“The process over the last few months in the relationship between education and government has not been what it should have been. And that is of no surprise to anyone that that’s my position,” Wynne told a meeting of the Ontario Public School Boards’ Association (OPSBA) Friday where she received a warm ovation.
The new leader also reached across to NDP Leader Andrea Horwath, suggesting that she’s prepared to work with her on a youth employment strategy.
Horwath has proposed a “First Start” incentive program to encourage employers to take on young workers.
“If we can find a way to do that then we can govern together,” Wynne said.
