Ontario says it’s launching a three-year strategy to make the province’s education system more equitable and inclusive for people of all backgrounds and cultures.

Education Minister Mitzie Hunter released details of the plan on Thursday, filling in some objectives of the three-year strategy that was previously projected to cost roughly $7 million.

The Education and Equity Action Plan calls for a new approach to Grade 9, a time when students typically decide whether to pursue their education in an academic or an applied stream that often shapes future career choices.
