300 schools in Ontario being considered for closure.

Mitzie Hunter, Ontario’s education minister says there are 300 schools across the province under the threat of closure.

The Progressive Conservatives have called for a moratorium on school closures and a review of the guidelines that determine which schools get put on the chopping block.

Hunter says there are 43 reviews currently under way involving 300 schools and in the 2016-17 academic year, school boards have decided to close 19 schools.
