The Ontario College of Teachers has released a professional advisory about responding to the bullying of students. To promote discussion, the College is hosting presentations and a panel discussion around the province with school board representatives, police services and community organizations.
The advisory, backgrounder and schedule of presentations are available on the College's website at oct.ca.
People for Education School Surveys
People for Education has just sent out its Annual School Survey to principals. We encourage you to fill it in, if you have time. The information in the reports is used by academics, policy-makers, the media and the Ministry of Education to assess education policy, talk about possible changes needed and paint a full picture of the overall health of our education system. This year the survey is seeking to find out more about where principals spend the most time and how they deal with competing priorities.
You can complete the survey online by following this link. Individual results are confidential, but the overall results are reported in People for Education’s Annual Report on Ontario's Publicly Funded Schools.
If you have any questions, please call People for Education at 416-534-0100.
