Consultation: Education in Ontario

 

We invite everyone – parents, students, educators and interested individuals or organizations – to provide feedback on the education system in Ontario.
Our goal is to prepare Ontario students for success, improve their academic achievement and equip them with the tools needed to enter the working world.
 
Consultation closing date: December 15, 2018
 
There are three ways for people to participate:
  • An online submission form, available now, that allows people, organizations or groups to provide their views on any of the consultation topics. Submissions can also be sent to the ministry by emailing fortheparents@ontario.ca  or auservicedesparents@ontario.ca.
  • An online survey that will be available soon in English and French, with questions that relate to the key themes below.
  • Telephone town halls across Ontario, with separate town halls in English and French. The telephone town hall discussions will be aligned with the themes discussed in the survey. The dates and times of these town halls will be posted on fortheparents.ca as they become available.

The consultations are intended to focus on the following topics:
  • How to improve student performance in the disciplines of Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM);
  • How our schools are preparing students with needed job skills;
  • What more can be done to ensure students graduate with important life skills, like financial literacy;
  • How to build an updated and age-appropriate Health and Physical Education curriculum that includes subjects like sexual health education, mental health and the legalization of cannabis;
  • What measures can be taken to improve standardized testing;
  • What steps schools should take regarding the use of technology in classrooms, such as the use of cell phones; and
  • What elements would participants like to see included in the Ministry of Education Parents’ Bill of Rights.
