School Year

Does anyone know if PD days (taken by the teachers) are included in the number of days children are required to be in school each year? The reason why I ask is that the Ontario government has just increased the number of PD days to 6 each year. We homeschool for the mandatory 180 days each year and we don't count sick days in that.

Another master stroke was handing majority control of the College of Teachers (responsible for setting professional standards and investigating disciplinary issues) over the teachers union. Yes, that's right, disciplinary issues will now be policed by a nice impartial group like the teachers union.
