InfoKathleen was elected MPP for Don Valley West in 2003. Prior to entering Cabinet in 2006 as the Minister of Education, she served as Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Training, Colleges, and Universities, and Parliamentary Assistant to the Minister of Education.

As Minister of Education, Kathleen secured an early release of grants to school boards to allow predictable budgeting, increased education funding this year by $781 million, passed legislation to fix the flawed Safe Schools Act, and continued work to lower primary class sizes, increase provincial test scores and increase graduation rates. As MPP for Don Valley West, she successfully advocated for stronger tenant protection, creation of the Ontario Child Benefit, greater access to employment for foreign-trained professionals, and reform to make the Ontario Municipal Board a true appeal body.

Before her election as an MPP, Kathleen served as Public School Trustee for Ward 8, founded the Metro Parent Network, and was a founding member of Citizens for Local Democracy. Kathleen holds a Masters in Linguistics from the University of Toronto and a Masters in Adult Education from OISE.

Kathleen has three grown children, Chris, Jessie, and Maggie. Kathleen has lived in North Toronto for more than 25 years, where she and her partner Jane are active in the community.
