The writing of this post is overdue but recent events have persuaded me to write it.
During the recent Provincial Election Campaign it was stressed that although individual Trustees may have political affiliation, the Ontario Public School Board Association (OPSBA) does not. OPSBA advocates for Public Education no matter what political party is in power or forms the Government. This advocacy may take different directions depending on the Government. In some cases we will be or are heading in the same direction but by different pathways.
Here are the Political Parties' Educational Platforms for the recent elections. Education Platform & 2018 Provincial Election
Previous Governments have done good and bad things for Education on various fronts. The vague PC platform coming into the Election made some cautious. That cautiousness is becoming reality. Globe & Mail newspaper article.
Those of us in the Education System can only wait and see what unfolds. Do we need to brace ourselves? Advocacy will continue at the Board and Provincial level.
