A Smith: The illiteracy rates for those on Ontario Works is very high, somewhere around 75% of those accessing services.

Peer to Peer has had people coming in who express the wish to be able to have the opportunity to learn to read, do math and other skills but the current system is not set up to help people. Some people may need specialized learning environments.

People need to be properly assessed by both health and educational professional to find out exactly what they truly need.

Forced is such a strong word but I would advocate for reform that would enable people to be treated as people, to guide them, toward what they truly need to help them. A system that listens to the people, not dictate. The current system does not do that.

The system is about paper pushing, not helping!
