Ontario NDP Leader Andrea Horwath poses with leaders of the student walkout at the Rally for Education April 6.

If a picture is worth a thousand words, the dozens and dozens of photos of the April 6 Rally for Education, published on social media by educators, parents, school-board trustees and supporters are enough to write a book on the level of opposition to the Ford government’s education cutbacks.

ETFO members were on buses as early as 4:30 am to get to the rally at Queen’s Park on time. The photos show enthusiastic spirit and a fierce determination to defeat the Ford agenda in education.
