The Ministry of Education will be consulting with parents across the province to
address concerns and get feedback in several areas of the education system. We invite
everyone – parents, students, educators and interested individuals or organizations
to provide feedback on the education system in Ontario.
Feedback from these consultations will help shape decisions in the following areas:
- 1.Improving student performance in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)
- 2.Preparing students with needed job skills, such as skilled trades and coding
- 3.Improving provincial standardized testing
- 4.Ensuring students graduate with important life skills, including financial literacy
- 5.Managing the use of technology in classrooms, such as cell phones
- 6.Building a new age-appropriate Health and Physical Education curriculum that includes
subjects like mental health, sexual health education and the legalization of cannabis
- 7.Developing the first-ever Parents' Bill of Rights
Registration for consultations in your region is now available at: https://www.ontario.ca/page/for-the-parents.
The Ministry of Education is encouraging every interested person in Ontario to participate,
through ways including open submissions, an online survey and additional telephone
town halls in your region in the coming weeks. 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.
