The TDSB has submitted feedback to the Ministry of Education’s Consultation: Education in Ontario.
The consultation, which closes on December 15, was open to students, parents, staff and organizations to share their feedback on education in Ontario.
The questions focused on seven key 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
The TDSB’s submission is based on a number of Toronto District School Board policies, practices, position statements, approved Board motions, Board research, current curriculum practices in schools and Board-approved system action plans, most of which have been developed with input from parents, students and the Board of Trustees.
