2018 Consultation: Education in Ontario
The telephone town hall sessions, open submission form and online survey are now closed.
We thank everyone who participated as your input will help to inform our work going forward. Our goal is to prepare Ontario students for success, improve their academic achievement and equip them with the skills they need.
About the consultation
We consulted with people across the province to solicit feedback on all components of the education system. We encouraged feedback on the topics listed below to help shape decisions in these areas:
- Improving student performance in Science, Technology, Engineering and Math (STEM)
- Preparing students with needed job skills, such as skilled trades and coding
- Improving provincial standardized testing
- Ensuring students graduate with important life skills, including financial literacy
- Managing the use of technology in classrooms, such as cell phones
- Building a new age-appropriate Health and Physical Education curriculum that includes subjects like mental health, sexual health education and the legalization of cannabis
- Developing the first-ever Parents’ Bill of Rights
What we heard
During the course of the consultations, the ministry heard from people in all parts of the province. They gave us robust feedback on the education system through the open submission form, online survey and telephone town halls that will be used for many years.
The consultation period has now closed and we thank all who participated.
