OCUFA releases criticism of ON’s performance-based funding plans

December 21, 2020

The Ontario Confederation of University Faculty Associations has released a statement criticizing the Ontario government’s plans to implement performance-based funding into postsecondary education. In the statement, OCUFA opposes the performance-based funding plan, which they say will decrease per-student funding. OCUFA also opposes the plan’s accelerated three-year phase-in. “This negligence will starve Ontario universities and colleges of vital resources required to ensure students receive a high-quality education,” reads the release. “If the government meaningfully consulted with college and university faculty, staff, and students, they would know that this is the wrong funding model at the worst possible time.” OCUFA (ON)
