Ontario’s education system according to its most important stakeholders.
The Ontario Student Trustees Association – l’Association des élèves conseillers et conseillères de l’Ontario is thrilled to release the Official 2017 Report of The Ontario Student, Parent, and Educator Survey. This report is comprised of qualitative and quantitative data extracted from the OSPES. Topics addressed include the perceived value and effectiveness of financial literacy education, mental health supports, and student voice in schools across the province. These results serve as a holistic assessment of Ontario’s education system from the perspective of three critical stakeholders.
“The Ontario Student, Parent, and Educator Survey results reveal that a large group of students feel voiceless in their school community. There are evident discrepancies between the vision behind government policy and the reality of a student’s educational experience,” said OSTA-AECO President Dasha Metropolitansky. “Student voice is often reduced to a buzzword, however the ability of young people to shape their future should never be used for rhetorical flourish. From financial literacy to mental health resources, we must ensure that the student perspective is not only heard, but is acted upon. The time for appreciation is over; the time for action is now.”The OSPES Report Infographic (1)
